Australian astrodata collector, researcher, editor, publisher and blogger. Mentored by Lois Rodden for several years before her death, he has researched and contributed hundreds of timed astrodata to various software programmes and books, and published hundreds of new data on his websites and blog.

Scholfield is currently the largest active collector of astrodata in the world. He joined AstroDatabank as an editor in 2013 and over 14,500 of his timed research data are included in the database. He is credited as data editor of various astrology books including Frank Clifford's Astrologer's Book of Charts (2009), Horoscope Snapshots (2014) and The Book of Music Horoscopes (2018).

Scholfield wrote the weekly "Star Lust" Sun-sign column for the Sydney Star Observer, Australia's premier gay and lesbian newspaper, 2000-2002, and worked as a ghost writer in the same field in the mid 2000s.

Having been a vegetarian for most of his life, Scholfield became a vegan in 2002 in support of animal and human rights and for health and environmental reasons. As hobbies, he works cryptic crosswords, lap-swims, mountain-treks, and enjoys gardening.

On 23 February 2011, he was awarded a Master of Philosophy degree by the University of Queensland, Australia.

Analysis of his DNA in 2020 revealed his ancestry as 46% Northern English, 26% Scottish, 8% Norwegian and 6% Southern Chinese, along with continental European (German and French).
