He currently teaches courses about Heathenism online and in person, and helps run Oracular Seidr rituals. He’s written several books on Northern European topics including the runes, and rituals. He most recently served as coordinator for Free Spirit Gathering Online 2021. His current projects include a book on Northern European philosophy and composing music for an operatic singer to be performed in England in 2022.
Scott received his B.A. from Beloit College in both International Relations and Music, and a Juris Doctor from the University of Denver College of Law. He currently resides with his wife and her partner, in Germantown, MD. He holds multiple certifications in various technical topics, as well as both in person and online education.
Outside of his spiritual pursuits, Scott has served as a network security and courseware developer for the last 11 years.
