Scott joined the CBS 11 Storm Team in September 2013 from sunny Miami, Florida.

Like many meteorologists, Scott’s interest in weather started at an early age. Oddly enough, he had a fear of the weather from the time he was 3 until he was about 12. While living in Illinois, Scott and his father, Rick, would sit on the front porch watching the storms roll into his neighborhood. He still remembers watching with amazement at the force of the wind and the intensity of the lightning. Thanks to his dad, his fear turned into a fascination, leading him to study meteorology at Western Illinois University, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in meteorology and a double minor in broadcasting and math.

During Scott’s last semester at WIU, he drove two hours each way to anchor the weather for KFXB in Dubuque, Iowa. From there, he crossed the country, making stops in: Bowling Green, Paducah and Lexington, Kentucky; Baltimore, Maryland; Oklahoma City and most recently Miami. Being from an Air Force family, Scott is used to moving, but is glad to be back “home” with family. Scott’s parents, Rick and Lorraine, live in Southlake and sister, brother-in-law and grandma also live in North Texas. Yes, mom is happy to have her “baby” back home.

Scott is both a member of the National Weather Association and the American Meteorological Society. In 2006, he was awarded the Seal of Approval of the American Meteorological Society. Scott is also an Emmy Award nominated meteorologist bringing more than 17 years of forecasting and broadcasting experience to North Texas.

Scott is the proud uncle of three nephews, all of whom live right here in North Texas. In addition to spending time with his family, Scott enjoys taking his Shih Tzu, Chloe, for long (well, long to her) walks, working out, collecting cufflinks (he has more than 30 pairs) and dabbling in photography. Scott is always up for an adventure so, if you have something fun you think he should do or a place where he should do live weather, drop him a line!
