Please Welcome Scott!
We’d like to welcome one of the newest members of the OneTable team, Scott Bratt, our Colorado City Manager. Scott comes to us with a diverse background and we’re so excited to have this adventure seeker on our team.
Where are you coming to us from?
I am originally from Overland Park, Kansas and attended KU where I studied Philosophy of Religion. I spent two years in Chicago then moved to Denver a little over a year ago.
What brought you to OneTable?
I have always been somehow connected to the Jewish community. From day school to youth group to Nativ, Hillel, Chabad, etc. Also, I have been in the food industry for six years and this opportunity was a combination of two of my passions and a perfect chance to find a career in something I am knowledgeable and passionate about. I love the idea of separating the sacred and profane and Shabbat is a perfect example of this, enabling us to assign specific intentionality in our food and community. OneTable gives me the opportunity to help create and nurture a community of people like myself sharing similar interests, specific to Colorado life-style.
What’s your vision of OneTable Colorado?
My vision for OneTable Colorado is to create a community of like-minded individuals who are interested in fusing the Colorado lifestyle (hiking, camping, biking, music, climbing, skiing, etc.) with the cultural and social aspects of Jewish community. I want people to incorporate their activities with community and be able to share the unique, illustrious culture of Colorado together and create sustainable, lasting relationships. I want to help build a network of millennials who seek enthusiastic, inspiring people and who get pleasure from hosting and attending dinners and grow along with the community and their peers.
Being from Kansas City, it is obviously our barbecue. Being a staff member of a Jewish organization, I’m also the biggest Shawarma fan.
Coolest Friday night dinner spot-go.
My first OneTable dinner that I hosted was outside of Lyons, Colorado, off of the Peak to Peak highway. We all got our tents set up and made a fire to cook the food and shared a beautiful, super Colorado-y dinner while being one with nature and seeing organic, beauty around us.
What do you do outside of work?
I play guitar and spend a lot of my time jamming with friends (mostly jam band music like Phish and Umphreys). I also love to go hiking and camping as much as possible and love going out to new spots to explore. Seeing live music is crucial to my being as is playing and watching sports of any kind.
