Have you met Scott Queen?
Scott is the Digital Media Manager for The Mint Museum. There’s awesome things happening over there. Check out the NexGen Mint initiative which offers the next generation of museum goers a new “place and space” to gather, exchange ideas, interact, and learn within the museum setting.
Hi! Have you met Scott Queen?
Read the answer to the first question below, the one about passion. This is absolutely one of my favorite answers. We talked about this in length when we met, that it’s okay not to be so honed in on one idea or ideal. It’s freeing. The possibilities are endless if nothing is off the table. Next time you’re not sure what you’re doing, think of Scott. He’s on to something here. He’s awesome.
Also, ask him about living all around Charlotte. I wish I could experience every neighborhood of Charlotte by actually living there for some time. He’s had that opportunity.
I asked Scott six questions. His answers are below his picture.
What are you most passionate about?
I am likely in the minority when I say, I just don’t know. There was a time when I could have easily answered that question, but perspectives change and so do people’s interest. I guess I am at a time in my life where I am of evolving, which leaves me feeling both excited and a bit free at the same time.
What would you like to see happen in Charlotte over the next 5 years?
More votes! It would be great to rank in the top 10 cities of highest percent of registered voters who actually vote in local elections.
If you could go back in time 10 years and give yourself one piece of advice what would that be?
2005? I guess I might have told my former self to save a bit of money and buy some stock in Twitter!
What is your greatest indulgence?
I am a big Youtube nerd.
What frustrates you?
People who drive like jerks. Although, I am pretty sure I used to be one. HA-HA
Dee Lanier wants to know what is your greatest memory with your father?
Just after high school I went to the eastern coast of Maryland, and worked side by side with my dad for a few months. There had been an oil leak in the pipeline , and we were testing the system with ultrasonics, looking for issues in the original fabrication. It was a small town on the Chesapeake Bay surrounded by a large population of Amish farmland. The pipe sat underground, so we did most of the work in the fields, inside 10′ x 10′ ditches. Being from a combined family with four brothers and two sisters, I never spent much one-on-one with my dad. I think it was during that time together that we went from being just father and son to becoming good friends.
