Scott’s Story

As a fervid lifelong music & film enthusiast / student, I grew up in and around the Los Angeles entertainment industry. I have worked and held many positions in various media realms, since 1998 serving as Editor-in-Chief and now Associate Publisher forSecurity Sales & Integration, a trade publication serving the electronic security industry.

I love several genres of music & film. The former includes funk (e.g. Parliament-Funkadelic, Prince, Ohio Players); blues (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, Eric Gales); rock (Jack White, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young); hard rock (AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath); jazz (Herbie Hancock, Bob James, Crusaders); R&B (Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Gil Scott-Heron); and more. I was a club disc jockey and ran a mobile DJ company (Musical Moods) for more than 15 years, which is where the nickname Dr. GX originates (Doctor Good Times).

Fave film genres include horror (e.g. Dawn of the Dead, Evil Dead, Nightmare on Elm Street); science fiction (Aliens, Terminator, 2001); action (Warriors, Road Warrior, Die Hard); westerns (Outlaw Josey Wales, Showdown at OK Corral; Wild Bunch); suspense (Jaws, Inception, Silence of the Lambs); drama (Apocalypse Now, Goodfellas, Pulp Fiction); and comedies (Life of Brian, Superbad, Ruthless People). I have attended many hundreds of concerts and movies (in theaters or screenings).

I may as well also throw in a few favorite TV shows to give an even broader taste of my sensibilities. A handful would be Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Lost, Justified, Fargo, Seinfeld, Sopranos, South Park, Brooklyn Nine Nine, Key & Peele, Monty Python, Inside Amy Schumer, Louie, Modern Family, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Last Man on Earth, Bob Newhart Show, All in the Family and The Office.

Fav authors are Stephen King, Clive Barker and Michael Crichton.

I am also a big sports fan and lifelong supporter of the Dallas Cowboys (NFL), Los Angeles Lakers (NBA) and Pittsburgh Pirates (MLB). Also enjoy my family of course, electronics/computers/AV gear, and animals, nature and outdoor activities.

I am a graduate of Santa Monica High School, Santa Monica College and California State University Northridge (Radio-TV-Film, Psychology minor). Also studied at UCLA for kinesiology/psychology and earned post-grad Certificate in Accounting from Santa Monica College.

As mentioned, my present main occupation is as Associate Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Security Sales & Integration (SSI). I am responsible for overseeing all editorial content in print. online, electronic, in-person and any other media or products for the electronic security industry’s leading business-to-business trade publication. SSI is part of Framingham, Mass.-based Emerald Expositions.

That’s my story in a nutshell. Below are pics of me from several years ago with two of my musical heroes, George Clinton and Bootsy Collins.
