Scott Arnold

Executive Editor, HPAC Engineering

Described by a colleague as "a cyborg ... requir(ing) virtually no sleep, no time off, and bland nourishment that can be consumed while at his desk" who was sent "back from the future not to terminate anyone, but with the prime directive ‘to edit dry technical copy’ in order to save the world at a later date,” Scott Arnold joined the editorial staff of HPAC Engineering in 1999. Prior to that, he worked as an editor for daily newspapers and a specialty-publication company. He has a bachelor's degree in journalism from Kent State University.
