Originally from Colorado, Scott studied theatre at Regis College, the University of Northern Colorado and apprenticed with the Arvada Center for the Arts. He then spent the next six years in Bryan, Texas, where he worked as Scene and Lighting Designer and Technical Director for StageCenter, the Navasota Theatre Alliance, and Bryan High School. In 1994, after completing his Ph.D. in mathematics, Scott and his wife moved to Louisville. Over the next seven years, he designed for numerous organizations including Kentucky Contemporary Theatre (KCT), Spalding University, Presentation Academy, Shelbyville Community Theatre and Louisville Repertory Theatre. In recent years, Scott has been the Lighting Designer for the University of Louisville Dance Academy. Scott found this wonderful Trinity opportunity when JC Reedy, his friend and collaborator (of over 20 years – with KCT), mentioned in passing that he was designing a show for Trinity and was in need of a lighting designer.
