Born in the small Midwestern town of Mattoon Illinois in 1961, Scott attended school at Lakeland College. He left college to pursue a career in sales, beginning with a phone directory company, rising to the level of Regional sales manager. At age 21 he acquired a Real Estate License and received a real estate broker’s license at age 25. During this time, he was successful in negotiating both residential and commercial transactions. In 1987 Scott took advantage of a sales management opportunity with a Fortune 500 Retailer in Springfield Illinois and shortly thereafter took a transfer with that retailer to the Austin, Texas area where he resides today. The next chapter  was to start his own magazine publishing company in 1989 with a member of his family. The magazine ran successfully until sold in 1995.

In 1993, Scott embarked on the most successful segment of  his 26 years in sales. He entered into a sales career with the largest national home builder in the United States, personally selling more than 78 Million dollars worth of new homes to over 500 families in his 15 years with the company. He won numerous awards at the state, regional and local level finishing with a 93% J.D. Powers customer satisfaction rating. With an extensive sales and marketing background, Scott brings a dynamic, fresh and enthusiastic approach in bringing the "Story of Wine" to the marketplace -- a story about the people who make high quality wine with centuries of passion and care going into every bottle. Scott hopes to use his skills to tell that story through his new company, World Wine Discoveries. Having known the other principle members of the corporate team for over a decade, Scott shares in his colleague’s enthusiasm to run a family business based on integrity and honor.
