Scott was introduced to Africa by Debra on their honeymoon. He had a passion for the wild as a youth that ran headlong into the working world. After decades behind a desk, he found that in Botswana and other areas of sub-Saharan Africa the human footprint was light, there was much to protect and preserve, and there was local enthusiasm for doing so. He quickly developed the same passion for elephants that his wife had always known. A reformed workaholic, he now joins Debra on as many of her regular trips to Botswana as he can while continuing to work full-time as a lawyer in Texas.
