Detailed Description

Update

Scott founded PhotoRocket in late 2009 and is active in articulating vision, strategy and product development.

Scott launched his career as a technology entrepreneur in 1981, at age 16. In 1987, after 6 years of consulting and writing custom software for small businesses, he joined Babbage's - later GameStop (GME), which eventually grew to be a 6,100-store Dallas-based international retail chain - to launch and lead their technology department.

With growing inquiries for licensing rights to GameStop's technology, Scott launched Omni Information Group in 1991 serving as the company's President and Chief Architect. Omni quickly became a leader in the retail technology solutions sector, winning major clients including Barnes & Noble.

In 1994, Scott joined Barnes & Noble (BKS) as Chief Technology Officer of its retail and college bookstore divisions (currently over 1,200 locations).

In 1996, Jeff Bezos asked Scott to join Seattle-based Amazon.com (AMZN) as its Vice President of Business Expansion, where Scott played a leading role in Amazon's early expansion.

Scott then co-founded Avenue A | Razorfish (aQuantive) and served as its Chief Technology Officer. The company was sold to Microsoft in 2007 for $6.6 billion (the highest amount ever paid by Microsoft for any acquisition).

In 2003, Scott founded GalleryPlayer - the world's leading provider of high definition imagery and technology for the explosive flat screen TV markets. GalleryPlayer's distribution partners included Google, Microsoft, Comcast, Panasonic, Mitsubishi and Samsung. GalleryPlayer was sold in 2008.
