As the Founder and Chief Happiness Officer at Happy Brain Science, Scott Crabtree empowers individuals and organizations to apply findings from cutting-edge neuroscience and psychology to boost productivity and happiness at work.

Scott’s audiences range from intimate groups of five CEOs to groups of thousands at conferences. Recent clients include Microsoft, Bose, Blizzard Entertainment, and Dreamworks. His insights have been quoted in Inc., InfoWorld, Fortune, and VentureBeat among other publications.

In his 25-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. In early 2012, he resigned his position as Tech Strategist at Intel to pursue his passion full time: helping people apply science to be happier and more successful.

“I loved making games and apps,” he says, “But when I began to delve into the science of happiness, I realized that I was onto something. Beyond just being pleasant, happiness at work can significantly increase productivity, creativity, and engagement. It makes for better organizations and more successful people.”

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, young daughters, and mutt, especially in nature, and also enjoys playing with his rock band. He lives in Portland, Oregon.
