About Scott Tillitt

I’m the founder of BEAHIVE and Antidote Collective, which does communications and projects for a better world (bio). I’m also a founder and board chair of Re>Think Local, and am involved in various other projects and community engagements focused on making Beacon and the Hudson Valley a more vibrant, sustainable, locally-rooted and human-scale place to live and work.

I moved to Beacon from Brooklyn in 2006 and very quickly fell in love with the people, the mountain, the river, the creative energy.
