Scott began his career in a small publishing company in his home town. He quickly transitioned from lead illustrator to art director while attending the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. There he helped spearhead the emerging Character Animation program, and was mentored by noted artist and illustrator Barbara Bradley. At Barbara's behest, Scott continued his education at Cal Arts, school of film and video where he graduated from the Character Animation program in 2006. Scott's work has been seen everywhere from picture frames and magazine ads, to children's books, television commercials, and the big screen. His out of the box thinking earned Farmers Insurance the award for Best Animated Float in the 2012 Rose Parade. Presently Scott is a Senior Illustrator with the Walt Disney Company where he recently received the prestigious Walt Disney Legacy Award.
