Scott's career could best be described as "eclectic". He first became interested in computers when he saw an Atari 800 running "Star Raiders", and quickly taught himself how to program. After a stint as a defense contractor, he joined the game industry for eight years, working on titles like the original "Deus Ex" and "PlanetSide". He returned to defense work for another decade before deciding that he wanted to work on projects that more directly benefited society. He started at Hyperfine Research (and the medical industry in general) in 2017, building the user interface and image viewer for a first-of-its-kind portable MRI scanner, before joining Synex Medical in 2022.
Scott loves virtually any kind of programming, but particularly if it involves tackling an interesting or challenging problem. He's designed and built user interface libraries, a 3D volumetric renderer, low-level machine language utilities, text parsers, web pages, internationalization libraries, image processing algorithms, mapping software, orbital path calculators, surface tessellation algorithms, ocean wave simulators... that sort of thing. His hobbies are similarly all over the place: astronomy, cartography, photography, hiking, biking, baking, karaoke, and amassing an enormous collection of books that he never has time to read. He lives in Connecticut but enjoys traveling in and working from his RV trailer on occasion.
