Scott Markus grew up in Mundelein, IL, and graduated from Columbia College in Chicago with a Bachelor’s Degree in Writing and Producing for Television.
Markus began working in the paranormal field through a documentary on the most haunted locations in Chicago in 1999. He released a book on the subject in 2003, which was re-released in 2008, published by Thunder Bay Press. In 2008 Markus began producing and co-hosting the radio show “The Mothership Connection” with Dobie Maxwell on WLIP 1050-AM. That radio show on the paranormal is still on the air every Sunday night from 8PM to midnight.
Markus’s career in film/video production began in 1997, when still in high school by creating corporate videos. After college, Markus moved to Hawaii where he worked on “Lost,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” and three seasons of the Discovery Kids series, “Flight 29 Down.” In Chicago, he worked on “Dark Knight,” “Prison Break,” “Stranger than Fiction,” and other major motion pictures.
Markus has been living in Los Angeles for the past four years, working as a freelance camera operator and film editor while also researching west coast ghost stories for another upcoming book.
