Scott was born in Bethesda, MD in 1968. Wearing uncomfortable plaid overall short suits (see profile picture), growing up in the 1970's, visiting museums and art galleries in DC, and riding in station wagons without wearing a seat belt, all helped to shape his artistic and quirky sensibilities. His interest in the arts was divided with his love for playing sports and music.

After graduating from Randolph-Macon College in 1991 with a BA in English, a creative writing award, and hours of studio art, he hitched a ride to California to surf. He soon realized film making was basically what happens when you combine the written word with the visual arts, he was hooked.

As an aspiring screenwriter, Scott fell into the art department. After a few years in the union, he returned to Virginia to open a retail pottery studio and got married. His desire to write continued and the initial concept of Bogey was penned as an animated featured film. But it wasn't until after starting a family, nights of reading books to his son, and the encouragement of his wife, did Scott decide to dust off Bogey and develop it into a children's book series. The idea of creating a book that would capture a golf Dad's interest, allowing him to bond with his children and help get the next generation interested in the game of golf was inspiring. So with the help of some close friends, Dottie Pepper, and others who believe in the vision, Bogey Ballton and the world of Scooter Pines was born!

Scott currently resides in Virginia Beach with his wife, Ann, son and a dog.
