Scott was born and raised in England. He started his work ethic as a printed circuit board assembler at the age of eight funding his travel experience through Europe. During high school Scott excelled academically, achieving an unprecedented number of O-Level and A-level results and winning peer respect as Head of House, Prefect and Student Council representative. It was during this time Scott started to understand the power of marketing, leading his High School House to victory in multiple inter school competitions by developing sells and marketing strategies to promote events rather than just rely on the talents of the kids involved.
Scott always dreamed of flying and he was one of only twenty youth in England to be awarded a full Scholarship to join the Royal Air force, an opportunity he had to forgo due to a history of child hood asthma. Scott deferred a college program at the London Institute of Photography to go work in France for a year before moving to Kelowna Canada for its accessibility to a flight school. Scott completed his private and commercial pilot training and worked as a flight instructor. When the airline industry collapsed economically he started up his own photography studio. However he soon realized that 35mm film was on the way out and that computer-based technology was the future of imaging. Taking on a managerial position of a retail franchise in the computer area, he developed his knowledge of the technology and enhanced his IT problem solving abilities. This fuelled the ability to be able to start a new digital print and design firm in Kelowna. Bringing the first large format printer into Western Canada and aligning with Xerox workflow methods, he established a new look to the Western Hockey Leagues rink board advertising, adding some of the first full colour imagery and graphics we are used to seeing today.
In 1992 Scott aligned with a single person home based company and over the course of fifteen years developed, formed and partnered Madhouse Creative. With a working background knowledge in the field of digital imaging, “street-smart” marketing and the talent to figure stuff out, Scott helped grow Madhouse into an 18-person agency. While partner at Madhouse, Scott worked on projects that won National and International awards as well as industry and peer group recognition.
Scott now works independently from a home based office working for a few select clients, but is always open to new and exciting challenges in Marketing, Advertising & Design. Scott also offers Social Media, Marketing & Insight consultation with an emphasis on integrating new and emerging technology into business development, and is available for talks and speaking engagements on such issues and their unique solutions.
