My name is Scott Ellis, I also go by "Digital MacGyver".
In my lifetime I have had the great opportunity to work across many industries and to this end I have been driven by one core motto: 'No boundaries, no limits, doing interesting things, in interesting places, without limits to current convention, with interesting people.’
Recently, I have been working with global companies delivering intranets, multi-lingual business communications and drive better content adoption. I worked with my teams to launch major digital properties for Integratelcom, Portland Trailblazers, Warn, Columbia Sportswear, Nike, WeLocalize, DWFritz Automation, ATT, Tripwire, and Microsoft. My SharePoint expertise and experience has given me the opportunities to work on some amazing projects.
One of my personal goals it to ensure that any project starts with a 'Design First' approach, focusing on the business needs, and customers. This is the first step to a success adoption story, and ensuring a consistent brand identity. Keeping a consistent message at all times is key.
In my off time you can find me at home doing wood working, building Steampunk and Desielpunk designs, working on classic motorcycles, creating industrial design furniture, and spending time with my wonderful family. I also like to find to speaking across the globe providing workshops and sessions which help to educate people from all backgrounds on the value of field, as well as to help inform them on the appropriate intersections of User Experience, Collaboration, Information Architecture and Security Awareness with other roles, so that everyone can work together to make their businesses better.
Keep Moving Forward,
