After spending 14 years as a paramedic, Scott wanted a career where it was less likely he would need to dodge vomit on a regular basis. 10+ years later, the hunch that web development was just such a career has paid off. In that time he has had the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the greatest minds in the ColdFusion community. Scott has made a concerted effort to 'pay it forward' and try to help others as he himself was helped early in his career. As a frequent conference speaker, author and co-host of CF-Hour, the only ColdFusion-focused podcast, Scott feels that he is finally able to start making a dent paying forward all the good will that has been showered upon him thus far in his career.
