 Scott was raised on the Delmarva Peninsula in a little hamlet named Hebron in Maryland. Scott began working on a farm at 11 years old and soon after was introduced to the Big Brothers/Big Sisters Program of America. His Big Brother changed Scott's life and helped set Scott on a path to success.

An accomplished wrestler in high school, after graduation Scott wanted to serve his country so he joined the Navy. He signed up to join one of the most feared fighting forces in the world, the Navy SEALS. After completing the six-month BUD/S training course in Coronado, California, Scott was assigned to SEAL Team 4 and served in the United States and Latin America, where he learned a fluency in Spanish.

Scott re-enlisted in the Navy after 9/11. In 2005, Scott was sent to Baghdad/Ramadi as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Scott served as a Navy SEAL sniper. Scott was severely injured while on a combat mission and was Medevac'd out of Iraq to Germany, then eventually back to the States.

In 2013, Scott won a hotly contested Republican primary and was in November elected to the House of Delegates, representing families in the 85th District which is principally the Kempsville and Town Center area in Virginia Beach.

Scott used his GI Bill education benefits to earn a bachelor's degree in International Relations from Harvard University's Extension School and is currently pursuing his masters there in the same field. He holds a Master's Certificate in Government Contracting at Old Dominion University.

As a member of the House, Scott has been a successful legislator on issues important to families. His legislative accomplishments include matters dealing with energy, workforce and veterans issues. Scott was sworn in to the U.S. House of Representatives in Virginia's 2nd district in January of 2017 and he is the first freshman member from Virginia to ever be appointed to the Appropriations Committee for a full term.
