About Scott Stoll

The short story: Scott has worked for over ten years in advertising and graphic design, which has served as the foundation to his life. His claim to fame is that he rode a bicycle around the world in a quest for the meaning of life, which he chronicled in his critically acclaimed book Falling Uphill, and has led to being a Cultural Ambassador with the US Dept. of State. Now that Scott has returned to the "real world" he is putting into practice the lessons he learned to help build mutually beneficial business relationships. More about Scott.

Continuing Education I continue take classes in self-improvement and the arts, such as the Corcoran School of Art in DC, Landmark Education in San Francisco. More importantly, I believe in taking my education into my own hands — I've learned more from life than I ever learned in a classroom. And recently I am an adjunct professor of graphic design at Antonelli College
