Richard Scott grew up in the wilds of Central Florida, where he spent his free time trespassing, often barefooted, on every stand of woods he could find. There he was surrounded by alligators, snakes, bobcats, and the occasional otter and yet sustained fewer injuries in their company than one might imagine.
Richard began his working life as a ranch hand for the Willow Ranch, located in the perpetually soggy Green Swamp area of Florida. After getting stomped, kicked, charged, and nearly gored by the cattle in his charge, Richard realized being a cowboy or, instead, cow-person was a profession best left to those with tougher constitutions.
Through no fault of his own, Richard soon began a 20-plus year career in advertising in Richmond, VA where he worked on literally thousands of television advertising campaigns. So if you’re older than 30, you’ve almost certainly seen some of his work.
In 2005 Richard moved to the Nashville area with his wife, Gina, and his young son Cooper. In Nashville, Richard worked on Music Row, supporting the entertainment industry’s film and video production needs.
Later Richard would move into the technology sector, where he remains today. He is a Product Manager for an international logistics automation and robotics firm.
