Scott was one of the early “cottage industry” kite makers who made a full-time living from kites. His geometric “star flake” kites were a staple of the early 1980s U.S. kite scene. Scott was a fixture at virtually all the Northeast U.S. coast festivals from the early 1980s until his death in 2008. Active in the American Kitefliers Association, he led workshops, competed in and judged competitive kite making, and shared his wealth of kite knowledge both with adults and with kids of all age.
