Board of Directors

Scott Brandt-Erichsen

Scott Brandt-Erichsen was born in Anchorage and is a lifelong Alaskan. He worked as an Assistant Municipal Attorney in Anchorage form 1988 -1995 and was the Borough Attorney for the Ketchikan Gateway Borough from 1995 until 2018.  He is now an attorney in private practice. Before law, he worked as a busboy, dishwasher, sign painter, fish processing and fishing, and scooping ice cream at Baskin Robbins.

Scott has been involved in community nonprofit arts and sports activities in Ketchikan since 1995 including coaching and refereeing soccer, appearing in plays, and serving on various boards from Ketchikan Theater Ballet, to Ketchikan Youth Soccer League, Ketchikan Running Club and Community Connections. He has been an active member of First City Rotary since 1995.

Scott’s wife Beth is an elementary teacher, now librarian, at Fawn Mountain, and she and their three daughters participated as artists and models in the wearable art show for more than 10 years. Scott’s paternal grandparents were both professional artists, sculpture and painting, and their former house is now the museum in Solvang, California. Scott’s parents both were very active in plein air painting in Anchorage, and his mother continues to paint regularly. Scott enjoys supporting and appreciating art, but aside from theater, is not much for producing art himself.
