The Book of scott . . .
“The only time SUCCESS comes before WORK is in the dictionary.”

Scott L. Tauber a.k.a. "ES" a.k.a. "eselteee" was born in Okinawa, Japan on July 18, 1972.  At age three, Scott and his parents left Okinawa to begin a new life in San Francisco where Scott has now resided ever since.  Scott graduated from Alamo Park (now Ida B. Wells) High School in June of 1990 where he was named valedictorian.  After earning his A.A. degree with honors at City College of San Francisco in May of 2009, Scott received his B.A. in Africana/Black Studies (with an emphasis on behavioral and social science) at San Francisco State University in January of 2012.  Upon completion of his Bachelors, Scott applied to graduate school and was accepted, studying to become a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor to work with persons with disabilities and chronic illness.  During his journey, Scott has been an intern with Community Behavioral Health Services where he worked with mentally ill and addicted populations and the San Francisco Sheriff's Department's Inside Out Program where he counseled men who had been incarcerated.  Scott's interests include music, baseball, Star Wars, and writing.  One of Scott's claims to fame is that he boasts one of the largest Cyndi Lauper collections in the world.  He also claims to have a Ph.D. in Hip Hop-ology.  Scott plans on releasing a book of hip hop haiku, appropriately titled HIP HOP HAIKU.  Scott's first children's book, a semi-autobiographical story called JUST CALL ME MORTON:  THE STORY OF A SAD AND CHUBBY BOY, was among the finalists in the inaugural Indie Publishing Contest hosted by San Francisco Writer's Conference.  Scott is open about his being an active member of the Overeaters Anonymous 12-Step fellowship which he gives credit to saving his life (and apologizes reluctantly to the OA Police for breaking any Traditions).  Along with his work in OA, Scott has spoken to mental health professionals about the correlation between starchy foods and sugar with depression and anxiety.  Scott currently lives in SF's Outer Richmond District with his cats Audrey and Dexter.
