After working in the ad world for some time, Scott decided to break out on his own. He started a small design firm in Auburn, Alabama where he specialized in helping companies build successful brands. After several years of building a reputation for award winning designs, he relocated his business south to better serve his clients (some of the largest developers on the coast).
 
With the real estate collapse in 2008, Scott decided to team up with one of his clients, CoachComm, a wireless communications company that provides sideline communications to D1 and High School football coaches. While working at Coachcomm, Scott designed a new international brand called CrewComm, a wireless hands free communication system used by production companies like, NBC, Golf Channel, WWE, Disney, and many more.
 
Just prior to joining Bit-Wizards, Scott was a designer for The National Infantry Museum in Columbus, Georgia. The highlight for Scott was rebranding the Global War on Terrorism Re-Dedication Ceremony. This annual event is held on 9/11 for over 400 Gold Star families who have lost loved ones since 9/11.
 
Scott is married to his wife, Valarie. They have one son, a daughter-in-law, and two beautiful grandchildren. In their free time you can find Scott and Valarie riding their bicycles. They are avid cyclists who have pedaled from Pittsburgh, PA to Washington, DC. Just last year they took a week off and rode across the state of Missouri.
