Irwan Tjan
We worked together  •  Vice President, Security, Chief Information Security Officer, Hootsuite Media Inc..
Scott is one of the most inventive person I've ever met. In the many years that I've known him, he has challenged many of my ideas in a tho ... ughtful way - resulting in a much better product afterwards. Great person to work and collaborate with.
Josh (Rantane) Diamond
We worked together  •  Principal Technical Product Manager, Expedia, Inc.. Previously Director of Technology,
Scott is extremely crafty. He will work through a problem from angles most people didn't even know existed until he finds a good set of sol ... utions. He consistently pushes the status quo and if he smells a opportunity he will drive towards it to flush it out. He naturally mentors people, collaborating and teaching to achieve higher level goals. In any environment, and with a wide range of areas, he will quickly become an expert and be sought out for his knowledge and expertise.
Joshua Thomas
We worked together  •  VP, Head of Software Engineering, PlayNetwork. Previously Director of Development, Expedia.
In my experience working with Scott, I found that his insights were invaluable to the success of my efforts. Scott not only provided sound a ... rchitectural feedback and guidance, but his ability to foster mutually beneficial relationships between various teams and people allowed me to expand my network and interact with others facing similar challenges.
Lakshmi Ravinath

Scott wakes up with ideas . He is extremely thoughtful and intelligent.
Mark Hood
We worked together  •  Senior Director, Expedia. Previously Senior Architect, Expedia.
Scott is one of the best that I have known at building and motivating a team to create a product. He has the ability to see the need and cr ... eate a vision for a product that is outside what most people see. He is also one of the few that I know that can think outside the box for the definition of a product, but still approach the development with true engineering discipline using the latest technologies available.
Ross Andrus
We worked together  •  Lead Software Architect, Skytap. Previously Senior Director of Architecture, Expedia.
I hired him to help bring Java to Expedia - a stultifying environment if ever there was one - and I watched him just swing into it - finding ... and creating opportunities to do cool and innovative work - and he did it all with passion, humor, and intelligence. He was effective in delivering, and won the respect of nearly everybody he worked with. I'd work with him again in a heartbeat - which makes him one of two people from my Expedia days.
Isobel Novak
We worked together  •  Architect, Enterprise Data Warehouse, Expedia, Inc.. Previously Data Architect, Applied Architecture, Expedia, Inc..
Scott is very motivated to develop game changing ideas and is an awesome team builder.
John Charlton
We worked together  •  Sr. SEO Engineering Manager, Staples. Previously Software Architect, Expedia.
He sees through bs and is extremely resource full and innovative.

Josh (Rantane) Diamond
We worked together  •  Principal Technical Product Manager, Expedia, Inc.. Previously Director of Technology,
Josh is an out-of-the-box kind of thinker. Regardless of whether it's a technical problem or an organization issue, Josh is great at weighi ... ng different alternatives and finding out what works best for the problem at hand. He's *exceptionally* gifted in the area of "emotional intelligence"... he's brilliant at thinking through how people operate and where the align best in any given organization.

Lakshmi Ravinath
Sr software test engineer, Expedia. Previously Sr Software Test Engineer, Expedia Inc.
Lakshmi is one of the few people who understand what quality means from a system level. Most people only focus on testing components or the ... deliverable that their immediate team is responsible for... not Lakshmi though. Lakshmi really focuses on what's best for the company, consumer, and the entire system. I'd hire her in a second to drive quality into any enterprise-wide system.
