Scott H. Ainsworth


Here are a few of my favorite things that have little or nothing to do with political science.

Given my home location just outside of Athens, Georgia, I am able to maintain a small garden and raise a few chickens. Due to some poor planning on my part, I also have a bird dog. When my wife and I shared our home with our two sons, it all seemed quite idyllic.

My favorite children's book author and illustrator is Susan Nees. You can learn more about her here. You can buy her books here.

I enjoy the arts - visual and musical.

In my spare time, I enjoy practicing martial arts - particularly tae kwon do. I am proud to say that I have achieved the rank of average. I am also proud to be affiliated with Live Oak Martial Arts, which is filled with fun and talented people and guided by a truly gifted instructor.

Here are some little known and entirely inconsequential facts about me. I once met Wayne Knight, better known as Newman on Seinfeld. He didn't recognize me. When I was in high school, I met Chuck Berry. He didn't recognize me either.
