As a 24-year veteran of the investment industry, Scott prides himself on his diverse investment background, and his strong Midwestern values and work ethic. Growing up in Madison, Wisconsin, Scott knew he wanted to be a “market wizard” from an early age. Launching his first business, a mobile restaurant that he expanded to multiple locations, while earning a BS in Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, he was able to pay his own way through college. He learned that the road to success is built on hard work, discipline, and treating others like you want to be treated. Upon graduation he, together with his now wife, Jennifer, opted for warmth of Southern California over the frozen trading floors of Chicago and Wall Street.
Scott is an award-winning businessman and entrepreneur with a history of success. He has founded and/or been the CEO of a Registered Investment Advisor in stocks, a Commodity Trading Advisor in futures and options, a Foreign Currency (FOREX) Fund, a Commodity Brokerage firm, an Insurance Agency, and a Hedge Fund.

Scott is an established Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) and investment fiduciary, who holds a variety of industry licenses including: the series 3, series 30, series 65 and Life Insurance.
