On a personal note. . .
Scott has been married for over thirty years and has one adult son and a daughter in-law. Scott lives in Northeast Tennessee, in a log cabin set on 15 wooded acres on a mountain side and nearly surrounded by an 8000+ acre wilderness recreation area.
Scott loves dogs and has two yellow labs, brother and sister, Luke and Leia. Yes. Scott is a bit of a nerd.
Scott has travelled quite a bit around the United States and abroad. Foreign travel includes Israel, Ireland, United Kingdom, Netherlands, France, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, Costa Rica, and Ecuador.
When not practicing law, Scott periodically works or has worked as an Adjunct Professor of Law, teaching Legal Methods, Bar Prep Strategies for the MPT, and Wills and Trusts. Scott is actively developing software to help law school graduates prepare for the bar exam using computer games and gamification to make at least part of that learning effort fun.
When not working, Scott enjoys playing interactive and creative games, playing with Luke and Leia, watching escapist movies, meeting people, and helping people. Get to know him well enough and you may hear a "dad" joke or two.
Nestled somewhere between work and play, Scott enjoys writing software and working on multimedia projects.
