Scott was born in Sydney and has always loved film. In fact he wagged school every day in year 9 and went to the movies to be dazzled by each weeks new release. He worked his way up the career ladder in Ophthalmic Optics for the past 19 years both locally & overseas. He made the decision at the end of 2010 to leave the comforts of his executive role and jump headfirst back into full-time study at film school. In the 5 months that followed he started to gain a reputation as a guy who gets things done, he formed a small production company and made 5 shorts a music video and a corporate video (Shorts have been entered into the Cannes, 48hr film comp & Tropfest). Feature films beckoned, and when the margin of things project came along, he knew it was time to move up to the big leagues. Scott has forged strong friendships with many like minded souls and in 2012 he founded WIST media.
