Scott is one of the founders and the Chief Executive Officer of TruLab. He is an experienced business leader who has been humbled by the challenges and tests of resiliency from starting and growing technology companies.

Scott was raised by a father who was a public school math teacher and mother who was an artist.

He obtained his B.A. in Economics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Scott is an Eagle Scout and a graduate of the prestigious North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics.
