I like technology, nature, art and adventure. Through my career, I explored a breadth of disciplines. Along the way, a few themes stood out. I love to work with community. I created my first online community in 1994. I founded and managed many through the years. I also worked often as a software developer. While I did work on a few videogames for consoles (XBox, Wii, PS2) and PC, mostly I have been employed doing Web centric work. I have deeply enjoyed several opportunities to design and build large scale social software platforms professionally. In more recent years, I’ve taken my passion for community offline and into the world of non-profits, development, and voluntarism. Meanwhile, I want to be outside most of the time.
My given name is Scott. In some circles, folks call me Koda – a named derived from my great grandmother’s maiden last name of “Zaskoda”. Chances are you’re here because you already know me – of perhaps more awkwardly, “of me” – and you need to look something up about me. That is why this site is here, after all. Until I get my own site in order, I suspect you’re probably most interested in my resume. I am, after all, currently seeking freelance Web development work while I finish graduate school.
Thanks for stopping by!
