Hey, Running Man!!
Our longstanding Grovemade team member Scott is a man of many talents. For years he’s been our workshop impresario. By bringing his trademark efficiency and do-it-allness to the Grovemade shop floor, Scott’s more than earned the title of The Ultimate Handyman. Outside of the office, he features as a metropolitan mountain man who homesteads in the urban wilds of his backyard. When he’s not in his garden or shepherding his goats, you just might spot Scott sprinting up the winding streets of Portland.
You see, for Scott, running is more than just a way to stay fit – it’s nature’s finest form of transportation. Running is a mobile dream shop that allows him to conjure up excellent new designs while darting from point A to point B to point C. It’s his personal bus ride to work, a leisurely car ride to the countryside and a free cabbie ride home from the pub, where he’s known, fondly, as “Hey, Running Man!”
Because of Scott’s enthusiasm for using his body as an engine and his feet as wheels, he’s been chosen as one of five featured runners in the Kickstarter-funded documentary “What Moves You.”
Combining the stories of everyday athletes from across the country with breathtaking cinematic videography, “What Moves You” aspires to weave together the tales and experiences of runners from all walks of life and skill levels. The film delves into the social, biological and cultural forces that drive them to the roads, sidewalks and dusty trails. It seeks that elusive common denominator – the reason behind the run.
So, to check out Grovemade’s very own Crazy Scott and to support an awesome documentary film project, swing on over to their Kickstarter page. While there, we hope you check out the preview of Scott’s chapter, The Urban Farmer Hipster! After viewing it, it could be you who’s running to work!
