Getting his BFA in theatre led to broadcasting and a stint as a top 40 DJ.
He moved to New York and started working in talent management, and began to see some early scripts get optioned. He transitioned to working in film production and also in production management during the height of reality television often at MTV and VH-1.
He has had several scripts optioned, written works for hire and excels at adaptations. His themes often revolve around outsiders looking for a way in - contemporary, suspenseful stories about a disenfranchised generation making questionable choices.
A production of Scott's original play, ScreenPlay won Best Play and Best Production at Manhattan's Midtown International Theatre festival and moved to an Off-Broadway run the following year. As it happens, Scott was appearing in ScreenPlay and saw an almost forgotten dream come true - his professional NYC acting debut.
His first novel, based on his experiences in hospitality and show business, And There We Were and Here We Are is available on Amazon Kindle and in paperback.
Scott's most recent project, Reality Sets In - an original comedy web series about being a newly single New Yorker at 40 – is streaming on Amazon Prime.
He is an avid reader and proud father.
