Being brought up the son of a naval aviator developed Scott’s interest in aviation early in life. Originally interested in jets his fascination soon switched to WWII aircraft, specifically the Luftwaffe designs. This led to the establishment of the Luftwaffe Resource Group. The site quickly diverged into other WWII aviation subjects and eventually became the Warbirds Resource Group in March of 1996. Over the next ten years the site has grew substantially and currently includes over 80,000 files. Scott spent 12 years as a graphic designer but has no formal training in web design or management, being entirely self-taught. In recent years he has been a truck washer, a computer programmer, a graphic designer, a Satellite Uplink Communications Technician, and is currently a lead technician in a prototyping lab at a tech company in Cambridge, MA.

Profile in the works.
"I am 49 years old and have been a police officer for 271/2 years in Waukegan,Ill which is about 45 miles north of Chicago. My career is most definately winding down as I will be retiring April 1st and then I will be flying B-17's full time. In my dreams of course! I have been married to my wife and airplane photographer, Linda, for 15 years. I have 2 step-children and three grand children; Christopher age 10, Wesley age 8 and Cameron age 6.
About 15 years ago I became an avid enthusiast of WW2 aviation which branched out into a general interest of all aspects of WW2. Approx 6 or 7 years ago I met a fellow who publishes a guide to aviation museums in the US and Canada (see www.aircraftmuseums.com) and since then I have become his main source of information. I have also contributed information and photos to www.armyairforces.com, infomation to the Aerofiles museum listings, as well as www.aerovintage.com and to www.warbirds-online.com."
"It's pretty much of a hobby of mine to keep track of the aviation museums out there and what planes they have. I have visited most of the major aviation museums in the US with the exception of the Museum of Flight in Seattle, the Evergreen Aviation History Museum in Oregon and Fantasy of Flight in Fl. My favorite museums are the USAF Museum and the Naval Air Museum in Fl."
