elliot trotter

I’m a writer and creative based in Seattle, WA.

Originally from Chicagoland, I moved west to study Creative Writing at the University of Puget Sound. I’m currently pursuing a Master’s at the University of Washington for Communication in Digital Media.

I produce storytelling videos for the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture and support communications at the Center for an Informed Public.

I helped found the CLAW Artist Guild, a not-so-secret secret organization for cartoonists in the South Puget Sound that runs an annual youth scholarship.

In 2010, I founded Skyd Magazine, which became the sport of ultimate’s largest media resource. I host and produce an ongoing travel series about ultimate on YouTube called Ultimate Globe Trotter.

I’m a 2-time US Beach Ultimate National Champion and have competed professionally with the Minneapolis Wind Chill, Vancouver Riptide, and the Seattle Rainmakers. I’ve represented Australia, Denmark, Mexico, and the Philippines at international championships.

In 2019, I launched a board game about privilege in America called Reality Check: The Game of Privilege. We raised $21k as part of a successful Kickstarter campaign and are now in production.
