Growing up, Scott thought he was going to be an astronaut. Like, he was WAY into the whole space thing, especially after a summer at Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama. Fast forward 30 years: Scott hasn’t yet slipped the surly bonds of Earth, but he has helped launch businesses and lead teams in a variety of industries, including consumer products, enterprise software, online media, and education.

Scott earned his BS at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and his MBA at Northwestern University. While he was applying to business school, Scott felt that books on the subject were somewhat lacking, so he and a friend published a better one. That led to his most recent job before Hennessey Digital, which was running a large national test preparation company (Veritas Prep) before the business was acquired in 2018. That job sparked his love of digital marketing, which eventually led to him joining the Hennessey Digital team in 2019.

A native of New Jersey, Scott has lived in Southern California since 2008 and he admits that the weather has grown on him. He loves spending time with his wife, Anita, his two beautiful daughters, and three ill-behaved cats. When he’s not working, you can find Scott competing on Jeopardy, rooting for the New York Yankees, and performing improv comedy in a couple of local troupes.
