Scott Adams Biography: On 8th of June in 1957 Scott Adams was born in Windham, New York on that date. Son of Paul and Virginia Adams, he is partially German. He began sketching comics at age 6 after being inspired by the Peanuts comics. He won his first art contest when he was only 11 years old. Adam graduated from Windham-Ashland-Jewett Central School in 1975 as valedictorian of his class of 39.

Adams’s interest in cartooning dates back to his youth, but he ultimately decided to pursue a more conventional career path, graduating from Hartwick College in 1979 with a bachelor’s degree in economics. In 1986, he received his MBA from the University of California, Berkeley, after graduating from college.

Scott Adams Early Life

Since Adams’ focal dystonia makes it difficult for him to sketch for extended periods of time, he now uses a graphics tablet. In July of 2008, he underwent surgery to repair the damage caused to his vocal cords by spasmodic dysphonia, a disorder that causes the vocal cords to behave in an unnatural manner.

In July 2006, Adams and Shelly Miles tied the knot on a yacht in San Francisco. They initially met at the fitness centre where Miles worked and Adams was a member. Adams adopted Savannah and Justin, children of Miles from a previous marriage.

In 2018, Justin, who was only 18 years old, died from a fentanyl overdose. Adams and Miles remain close friends even though they are no longer together. Adams announced his engagement to model Kristina Basham on his Christmas Day 2019 podcast. On July 11, 2020, the couple exchanged wedding vows. Basham has two children from a previous marriage.

Scott Adams Net Worth

As an American cartoonist, Scott Adams has accumulated a $50 million fortune. The creation of the comic strip Dilbert led to the fame and financial success of Scott Adams. He is a successful novelist whose works include “The Religion War,” in addition to Dilbert.

Early Profession and Dilbert Success

The first Dilbert comic was published while he was still working for Pacific Bell, one of the many companies for which he later worked. Adams was a diligent worker, so he drew for a few hours every morning before heading to the office. Mike Goodwin modelled Dilbert after his real-life ex-boss, Dilbert.

He attempted to pitch and submit Dilbert to publications such as The New Yorker and Playboy, but to no avail. Between 1986 and 1995, he worked for Pacific Bell. He drew inspiration from a number of Dilbert’s coworkers as a result of his time there.

In 1989, he began publishing Dilbert with United Media while continuing to work as a cartoonist for Pacific Bell. $368.62 was the initial royalty payment from Dilbert. In 1991, Dilbert first appeared in 100 newspapers; by 1994, that number had increased to 400. Thereafter, Dilbert’s popularity skyrocketed, allowing Scott Adams to quit his day job and devote himself to cartooning full-time.

By 1996, Dilbert had been syndicated to 800 newspapers. In that year, Adams published his first book in the business genre, “The Dilbert Principle.” Adams received the Outstanding Cartoonist and Best Newspaper Comic Strip of 1997 Reuben Awards from the National Cartoonists Society in 1997. The original “Dilbert” television series aired from 1998 to 2000 and won a 1999 Primetime Emmy. The comic was published in 2,000 newspapers in 57 countries and 19 languages by the year 2000.

Since then, Dilbert’s popularity has skyrocketed, generating a tonne of revenue for Adams through merchandise, books, and even a brief but successful animated comedy. Adams has been unable to avoid controversy despite (or perhaps due to) his accomplishments. Recently, he disclosed that, in order to protect himself online, he had assumed a false identity. The Dilbert comic strip continues to appear in newspapers around the world.

Other Ventures

Scott Adams is the CEO of a vegetarian-friendly food company in addition to being the creator of the Dilbert character (he is a vegetarian). The Dilberito and Protein Chef are two products manufactured by this company. He attempted unsuccessfully to open a restaurant.

During the height of his popularity, the Dilbert star made guest appearances on both “Babylon 5” and “NewsRadio.” Among his numerous media appearances are Real Time with Bill Maher, the Commonwealth Club of California, Fox News, Real Talk with Zuby, Making Sense with Sam Harris, and the Joe Rogan Experience.

In 2015, Adam predicted with a 98 percent chance that Donald Trump would be elected president. He based his claims on his evaluation of Trump’s persuasion skills. Once his blog gained popularity, he decided to transform it into a daily vlog titled “Coffee with Scott Adams.”

The show has already amassed over 27 million views and 95,000 subscribers on YouTube. In 2020, Trump retweeted an episode of the show in which Adams made 15 jokes about Joseph Biden. In 2018, Adams and Trump met in the Oval Office, during which Adams was presented with an award. Both “God’s Debris” (2001) and “The Religion War” (2004) are religiously critical works written by him.


Adams has been unable to avoid controversy despite (or perhaps due to) his accomplishments. Recently, he disclosed that, in order to protect himself online, he had assumed a false identity. Adams predicted that Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, and Joe Biden would all contract COVID-19 in March 2020, and that one of them would die from it by December 2020.

Politico described Adams’s prediction as “one of the most audacious, confident, and astonishingly inaccurate predictions of the year.” If Joe Biden were to become president in 2020, Adams stated, “Republicans will be hunted, and there is a strong possibility they will be dead within a year.” Neither do we yet know this.
