How Scott is building a better working world

“I would like to draw attention to how technology is increasingly shrinking the (business) world. While I reside in Los Angeles, I am increasingly finding that my activities and interests extend far beyond local borders. Through platforms, such as my board position on the LA World Affairs Council and the Entrepreneur Of the Year program my goal is to highlight that no matter where we reside or where we work, we must be prepared to live and work in a globally connected and integrated marketplace.”
