Born in Middletown NJ, Scott first began to explore martial arts in high school through a Japanese art form called, Aikido. Around this time, he also began to develop an interest in Celtic spiritual arts.
Scott went on to study at Rutgers College of Engineering where he continued to participate in martial arts through various college clubs, including Capoeira, Judo, Eskrima, Taijiquan, and Qigong. After graduating, he felt called to pursue a career in Acupuncture and got accepted to the New England School of Acupuncture. He went on to graduate with a Master's of Chinese and Japanese Acupuncture in 2002 and has been practicing for the last 20 years.
In 2008, Scott began to study under Mugen Roshi, a Grandmaster of Daoism known as "Pure Wind Immortal," who is recognized as a "Nyingma Tibetan Buddhist Tulku" and a lineage holder of Mongolian Shamanism. He continues to study under this great master to this day and is ever grateful to him.
In 2012, Scott began a 4 year apprenticeship under the late Tira Brandon-Evans who was a teacher of Celtic Shamanism.
