Hi, Iā€™m Scott Gietler

I conceived the idea of ChemTalk after being thoroughly unsatisfied with currently available resources for chemistry education and inspiration. My chemistry background includes being part of the ACS International Chemistry Olympiad team two years in a row in the 1980s. After getting a BS from Case Western Reserve University and an MS from the University of Virginia, I worked on wall street for a decade and then founded and operated several companies in the fields of travel, eCommerce, education, and the arts – including Bluewater Travel, Bluewater Photo, Bluewater University, the Underwater Photography Guide, and the Ocean Art International Photo Competition. I live in Southern California with my family and enjoy science, photography, musical instruments, marine life, gardening, and travel.
