Scott grew up in, and has lived his entire life on, the Chesapeake Bay. A lifelong resident of York County, VA he started fishing the Mid-Atlantic Coast with his father and grandfather at a very young age and fishing crab pots from his own boat while in his early teens.

After graduating from ODU, he began a career in the electric utility industry that spanned 14 years. During this time the salt water kept calling, he acquired his Coast Guard Masters License and eventually left the middle management area of the utility business to make a living on the water. Over ten years ago, Scott started selling and brokering boats and yachts and has developed lasting relationships with boat manufacturers, marinas and customers, many of these customers in overseas markets. The move to Bluewater Yacht Sales in the fall of 2012 was a natural progression, as many of his longtime customers will point out.

When not busy with the boat business, which is rare, just ask his family or take a look at his cell phone minutes, Scott passionately enjoys coaching high school football, at the same school where he played. He also loves to spend time on the boat with his wife and family, 3 girls and a boy.

Scott loves to fish and competes in several tournaments every year. He is always eager to share his love for the water with new and repeat customer/friends.
