Introduction: Scott Kester was born and raised in Kansas. Art, skateboards, video games, music, and movies fueled him from an early age. An unhealthy obsession with fighting games and the characters in them led him toward a passion for drawing his own. After stints in both comic and graphic design worlds, he found his way to Gearbox in 2007 and was given the opportunity to conceptualize characters for Borderlands and Borderlands 2. Following that, he moved into an art director role on Battleborn and Borderlands 3. He resides in McKinney, Texas, with his amazing wife, Raegan, and their five children.
