Scott spent his first six years in the industry at Prudential Securities, and in 1999, he joined Morgan Stanley as an Associate Vice President.
In 2005, Scott had a turning point in his career when he realized he enjoyed the aspect of management and development and got the opportunity to join MetLife as a Sales Manager in their financial planning firm in New York City.

Scott has been married for 22 years to his wife, Sandi; they met through mutual friends while they were both working and living in New York City. In 2004, Scott and Sandi welcomed their twins, Sophie and Luke. When Luke was eighteen months old, he was diagnosed with Autism. Since that day, Scott and Sandi have been extremely active fundraising for various organizations, including Autism Speaks and the North Shore Autism Circle. In the summer of 2013, they started their nonprofit, 501(c)3, “Go Long for Luke.” Go Long for Luke’s mission is raising Autism Awareness and Acceptance.
