Imagination Mover Scott Co-Executive Producer
Scott Durbin is Imagination Mover Scott and co-executive producer of Disney Channel's new Playhouse Disney series, "Imagination Movers."
An award-winning elementary school teacher, Durbin first dreamed up the idea for "Imagination Movers" in 2003. Inspired by Mr. Rogers and Captain Kangaroo, Durbin's goal is to bring strong male role models to children's programming.
The son of a military chaplain, Durbin grew up all over the world, including Thailand, Washington, D.C. and San Antonio, before his family settled in New Orleans when he was in second grade. He continued to travel throughout high school and college, studying abroad in both Japan and Denmark. The mandolin playing Durbin credits these adventures with giving him the ability to see things from a variety of perspectives, a trait he brings to the series through his characteristic "Wobble Goggles."
Prior to the Movers, Durbin was an award-winning teacher, earning the New Teacher of the Year award from Isidore Newman School and a Teacher of the Year award from the St. Charles Parish public school district. He received an undergraduate degree in religious studies from Centenary College of Louisiana, and a graduate teaching certificate from the University of New Orleans. Durbin's interest in music stems from his childhood and the time he spent as the front man for various alternative bands throughout the 80's and 90's.
After losing his home to Hurricane Katrina, Durbin, his wife and their two kids moved to Lafayette, Louisiana to be closer to their extended family.
