Scott knocked my socks off with his creative design abilities coupled with the technical. In the early days of HighlightsKids.com, he would create the design, craft audio, then build code for the engine that made it all work. He’s also one heck of a project manager as he understands all the steps that need to happen in a process. Hard-working, always learning—a great personality.
