Scott Benjamin Remer was born on November 19, 1993 in Cleveland, Ohio and now resides in Beachwood, Ohio with his parents, his brother Alex, and his cats Kinsman and Cleo.
He graduated Yale University in 2016 with a major in Ethics, Politics, and Economics. He plans to get a Ph.M in Political Thought and Intellectual History at Cambridge University in England this year. Words of Wisdom is his first book, but it will not be his last.
Scott was always a superlative speller, and his mother asked the Beachwood school system to participate in the regional Plain Dealer spelling bee for Northeast Ohio. He won in 2007 and went to the National Spelling Bee and placed 34th. In 2008, he placed 4th. To read his account of the experience, check out his blog at:
After aging out, Scott spent the next fourteen months writing Words of Wisdom. If he hadn't aged out, he would still be trying to win that coveted trophy!
