Scott Doorley, director of the Environments Lab, shares insights up close and personal about why the dschool is innovative.
Scott Doorley hails from Boston and makes his way to the d.school after a brief return to the cold and snow of the east coast, where he taught film production at Boston University. Unlike most Northern California residents, Scott loves Los Angeles, where, among other things, he attended film school, met his wife, and performed almost every job imaginable in the film industry -- from early days in music videos running cases of Crystal to rap stars, to later years shooting footage for CBS reality shows in undisclosed locations overseas (and plenty in between).
As a Masters Student in Learning, Design & Technology, Scott explored what it means to design for thinking. He joins the d.school with an interest in applying design to domains, such as writing, filmmaking, and informal learning, that don't always take advantage of design methods. Like many mammals, Scott loves to eat, but he also loves to cook, a habit he developed while working as a "chef" on a dive boat around Catalina Island in Southern California.
