Scott began square dancing while in High School at age 16. After graduation in 1984 Scott joined the Pittsburgh Area Callers Association and began learning to call. In 1986 he attended his first National Convention in Indianapolis. Scott soon went on to learn Rounds, Ballroom, Latin, Swing, Clogging, and Country Western dancing.
While attending California University Of Pennsylvania, Scott met his first wife and competition dance partner, who became the mother of his only son Shawn Brown.
After graduating university in 1996 with a degree in Science, Scott returned to calling square dances and founded Gold Rush Square Dance Productions in 1997. While working as a Chemist in the Pittsburgh area, he began producing Square Dance music with the help of a good friend and fellow caller Ed Mitchell, who has since retired.
