Scott grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. He started diving through a program at Ohio State University in 1995. He started diving because he LOVES underwater ecosystems. He is a fish fanatic and could probably tell you the common and Latin names of any species of fresh or saltwater fish. The most memorable dives he has had were in Okinawa (near Japan). His future goals for diving include being the best instructor he can be, seeing as many aquatic ecosystems as possible and becoming the most proficient diver he can be.
