Scotty was born in 1959 and grew up in Tigard Oregon, in a pretty typical middle class family of five. His father supported the family as a middle school science teacher, and his mother stayed at home corralling him and his two younger brothers.


Scotty and his wife Janet currently reside in the little town of Newberg in the heart of Oregon’s wine country. They’ve been happily married for 35 years and have three grown children, and two grandchildren. Both he and Janet feel truly blessed to have both sides of their strong extended family living close by and enjoy spending time with their children, grandchildren, parents and many of their siblings who also live in the area.
