Scott has studied music since he was 10-years-old and could easily be identified as that kid you grew up with who made sound effects and creature noises with his mouth. Little did he know it would lead him into a career doing just that. His talent for creating personalities with his voice has been tapped for such memorable movie characters such as Flubber, Disney’s Herbie, Reapers in Blade II, The dragon in Shrek, and Kirchek in Tarzan.
After attending Berklee College of Music, Scott made a name for himself as one of the pioneers of audio technology in film and games. Using what he learned as a synth programmer and recording engineer, he was one of the first to utilize computers to edit and design sound against picture. He has embraced technology to better help him tell stories through audio and take audiences on an immersive journey. Scott considers himself an audio photographer who captures the sounds of life and manipulates those sounds in new and exciting ways, enabling him to be currently doing some of his best work.
