He is as passionate about hearing your stories as he is about telling his own.
As a performer, Scott has brought his dynamic blend of vulnerability, humor, and insight to venues, festivals, and conferences all over the world, and has been seen/heard on NPR, PBS, WGN Radio, FOX-TV, Sirius XM, and The Risk Podcast. He is a two-time Moth Slam winner and runner up at The 2012 Windy City All-City Story Slam Championship. His work ranges from the heartbreaking to the hilarious, and he has personal stories for both an afternoon with a child in your lap and a late night with a cocktail in your hand.
As an instructor, Scott has lead hundreds of workshop and class sessions for diverse groups of all ages, from theater camps to corporate seminars. His independent monthly class has been selling out since 2012, and he has facilitated training for a wide variety of corporations, non-profits, and community organizations nationwide. Scott's private coaching clients have included a Fortune 500 CEO and he has been a frequent guest instructor at Chicago's top universities and business schools. In 2014, he was the featured instructor at Hong Kong Story Worthy Week, headlined by David Sedaris. No matter the environment, Scott's goal is always the same: to help people discover and develop their own unique voices as storytellers.
As a producer, Whitehair has made it his mission to spread his love of storytelling and create as many opportunities as possible for his neighbors to hear and share stories. He is the producer of This Much Is True, one of the city's longest running personal narrative series, creator of Story Lab Chicago, which was recently mentioned in Forbes and Newsweek, and director of Do Not Submit, a citywide network of community building open mics. He is frequently asked to bring his production talents to private performances, organizational showcases, and corporate events of all types.
Scott currently serves on the board of directors for the National Storytelling Network.
