Scott grew up in a small town on the mountaintops of the Adirondacks in upstate NY. Graduating from high school in 1991 as part of a class of 60, he dreamed of bright lights and big cities. He left the mountains and the hillbilly life to attend college at SUNY Stony Brook on Long Island. It was as far he could get from his one horse hometown and as close as he could get to NYC. He studied Sociology and Women’s Studies and graduated in 1995 with a BA. After college he moved to NYC and became a Social Worker. He managed group homes for the mentally ill and did what he could to make the world a better place. After a couple of year’s in NYC he moved to Boston for the first time, thinking it would be a more affordable place to live on a social workers salary and quickly discovered that Boston isn’t that much cheaper than the Big Apple. After a couple of years in Boston Scott burnt out on social work and do-gooding and he decided to be selfish for a while and live a little. In 2000 he bought a pure white Chevy Moving Van to live in and spent the next few years traveling and working all over New England and leading a simpler life. He spent summers on Martha’s Vineyard/Provincetown and winters Skiing in Vermont. In order to eat and keep gas in the van he worked a myriad of different jobs including bartending, serving, stage managing, driving cabs, mucking horse stalls, landscaping, dog walking, cooking at a health food store, restaurant managing, performing in drag and on and on… In 2005 Scott met his future husband and love of his life Chris and moved back to Boston to be with him. He worked at various restaurants around Boston before becoming the Czar of Hospitality at Myers+Chang.
