Scott Crabtree founded Happy Brain Science in 2012. Because he’s the founder, he gets to call himself whatever he wants, so his title is Chief Happiness Officer! He strives to be our guide to the science of thriving at work.

Scott’s repeat clients include NBC, Nike, Boeing, Intel, Hewlett-Packard, Kaiser-Permanente, Blizzard Entertainment, and Dreamworks Animation. His insights have been quoted in Inc., InfoWorld, Fortune, and VentureBeat among other publications.

In his 30-year career, Scott has served as a leader in game development and software engineering. He’s founded startups and worked at a variety of technology companies large and small. He resigned his position as a leader at Intel to pursue his passion: helping people apply science to be happier and more successful in their careers.

Scott holds a B.A. in Cognitive Science from Vassar College.

When he is not immersed in scientific data, he loves spending time with his wife and daughters especially in nature, and also enjoys playing with his rock band. He lives in Portland, Oregon.
