A founding partner of EJP, Scott was schooled and licensed as an architect, and then moved on to managing large public works projects. Later, he initiated his public housing career at the Seattle Housing Authority redeveloping Holly Park under HOPE VI. In the late 90s, Scott transferred to the private sector to apply his expertise nationally with PHAs and cities working to thoughtfully sustain and preserve their affordable housing.
Scott’s areas of expertise include affordable housing policies and program management; strategic planning, programming, financing and development of mixed income, mixed tenure (rental and for-sale) communities; portfolio analysis; and working with public housing authorities, cities and for-profit and non-profit developers. He has worked as HUD Expeditor, developed and taught HUD’s Mixed-Finance Procurement Training and helped develop HUD’s Mixed-Finance Rental Term Sheet and Review Panel protocol.
