SCOTT salser-smith


Scott has lived most of his life in Gardena and Torrance, in Southern California.

In 2006, when he was 39, he moved to Northern California and hopped around - living in Antioch, San Francisco, Walnut Creek, and Lafayette.

He currently lives in Lafayette and is married to Steve Salser, a high school physics teacher with a PhD in Microbiology. Together, they have four children: Chris, 9; Abby, 9; Emmy, 7, and Nathan, 6. Also, two cats, Laser & Thunder, and a dog, Amy.


Um.... also a Bearded Dragon, Mushu, and eight anonymous chickens. 

Scott graduated Magna Cum Laude from California State University, Dominguez Hills, with a BA in Mass Communications. He also has an Associates Degree in Journalism from El Camino College. 🧑🏼‍🎓


Before doing Out of Whack, Scott had many public relations and marketing jobs that he hated with every ounce of his being. His hobbies include traveling, buying expensive electronics, vinyl records, podcasting, and edibles. 🤪
