About

I'm elliot trotter.

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

Originally from Chicagoland, I moved west to study poetry at the University of Puget Sound. I completed my Master’s of Communication in Digital Media at the University of Washington in 2020.

I’ve supported organizations including the Burke Museum of Natural History & Culture, the Center for an Informed Public, and the Allen Institute in digital communications and content creation.

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.

I wrote a satirical book series of illustrated stories called BroTales: Fairy Tales for Bros.

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 have been working with Mercer University School of Medicine to develop DEI training programming.
