Scott lives in Cleveland, Ohio with his wife Annie, daughter Isabel and son Miles. Scott enjoys playing the piano (sorry George, no punk - more the Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel style), hiking, traveling and reading. He is a lifelong Cleveland sports fan and will go toe-to-toe with anyone debating Bernie Kosar's merit as a Hall of Famer. You can find Scott most summer evenings (and October afternoons twice a century) listening to the Cleveland Indians.
