This suited him for a few years but he always wanted more of a challenge and an area to improve skills constantly, so he turned to cryptocurrency. Scott believes in the old quote "you carve your own future" and is a testament to this due to his humble upbringing. He’s learning the world of crypto as he goes with a creative flair, an eye for perfection, a passion for analytics…and an appreciation for brutal feedback to constantly improve himself.
