Scott grew up in the southeastern United States and has been interested in wildlife and nature as long as he can remember. As a young kid he was fascinated by birds of prey, reptiles, and all of the other fauna that lived in the woods near his house. When he was 14, his family made a trip to the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem to visit Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks and he has been hooked on the west ever since. He moved to Missoula, Montana to study Wildlife Biology at the University of Montana. He is a passionate wildlife photographer who enjoys adventuring into the many wilderness areas of Montana with his dog Frankie.
