Scott Maisey

Greetings! My name is Scott Maisey. I have the privilege of teaching the Photography, Animation, Graphic Design and Yearbook courses for the 2016 / 2017 school year at Ogden Preparatory Academy. I wanted to take just a moment to share a little about myself. I am originally from southern Idaho. I came to Utah around 2000 and have developed a great love for this state.

I began working as a professional artist during the year 2000. I worked as an animator, illustrator and 3D modeler for several different Utah-based studios. These were cutting-edge studios engaged in game development for publishers such as Warner Bros, Universal Studios and Marvel to name a few. The games I helped develop were made for the PS2, Xbox, and Nintendo systems.

After about 6 years into my art career, I abandoned ship and enrolled at Weber State University in an attempt to finish my four-year degree. While at Weber, I majored in Spanish with a Commercial Emphasis and minored in Art. I excelled while at Weber State and was fortunate to graduate Suma Cum Laude placing me among the top of my class.

Shortly after graduating from Weber, I was accepted into law school. I attended law school at the University of Idaho which is located in the bucolic setting of Moscow, Idaho. I graduated from the University of Idaho and earned my Juris Doctor in 2012.

When I am not working, I love to spend my time hiking. I also try to spend as much time as possible with my family. I enjoy being with my sons and daughters and taking them to experience new and fun things. If I get a chance, I love listening to music, playing the guitar, drawing and tinkering with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.

Since graduating from the U of I, I have come full circle as I have once again found myself involved in the field of art. It has been both a challenge and a true privilege teaching here at OPA. However, the real reward has come in the form of the relationships that I have formed with so many outstanding youth. I optimistically look forward to the remainder of this school year and hope to impart both interesting, fun and utilitarian knowledge and skill sets with my students. Best Regards, Scott.
