Who is Scott Adams?
Scott Raymond Adams was born in Windham, New York State USA, on 8 June 1957 – his zodiac sign is Gemini and he holds American nationality. Even today he’s perhaps known best for his comic strip “Dilbert”, which became popular all around the world in the ‘90s.
Scott was raised in Windham by his father Paul and mother Virginia. He started reading comics at a very early age, and his favorite was “Peanuts”. When he was six he began drawing his own comics, and 11 when he won his first drawing competition. He was educated at Windham-Ashland-Jewett Central School from which he matriculated as valedictorian (best student among 39 people), and then enrolled at Hartwick College from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics in 1979. Scott then moved to California and eventually enrolled at the University of California, Berkeley, from which he graduated with a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree in 1986.
From graduation to obtaining his MBA (1979-1986), Scott worked at Crocker National Bank with their telecommunications engineers, and during those years often worked on his comic. He has stated that Dilbert came from Mike Goodwin who was his ex-boss, while Dogbert came from his family’s deceased pet dog Lucy. From 1986 to 1995, Scott worked at Pacific Bell, and in 1989 published his first “Dilbert” comic, for which he received a check for $368.62 – by 1994, 400 newspapers were publishing Scott’s comic.
By 1996 Scott had become a full-time cartoonist, and his comic was featured in around 800 newspapers.
In the same year he published his first book, “The Dilbert Principle”. In 1998, the TV series “Dilbert” began airing, and won Scott a Primetime Emmy Award in 1999, however, it was cancelled the following year. In 2000, it was reported that the comic “Dilbert” was featured in around 2,000 newspapers, translated into 19 languages and sold in 57 countries.
Scott has also worked various other jobs, including being the CEO of his own company Scott Adams Foods, Inc., and a restaurateur. He has also published his second book – “How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big”.
