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.
Broadly, Scott’s work focuses on how physical context and digital media can use drama to create authentic interactions. As a member of the d.school since the early days, he has and continues to work on a variety of projects, from shaping the future vision of the institute to designing the many iterations of the d.school’s various homes on Stanford’s campus. He teaches several classes in subjects at the intersection of design and media arts: storytelling & visual communication, improv, and digital media design.
Scott’s design work is informed by his10 years of work in the film industry and 6 years in higher education. He approaches design and education with a theatrical bent. As an artist, Scott’s large-scale digital installations with the Dacha Art Collective have been exhibited in the San Jose Museum of Art and the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts San Francisco.
Scott has degrees in Film from the University of California, Los Angeles (BA ’96), and Learning, Design, & Technology from Stanford University (MA ’06).
