Scott was born in Santa Monica, California on March 5, 1965 to Sandi Sabin and Gary Holt. He moved to Laguna NiguelCalifornia where he primarily resided for over 50 years. Scott attended Dana Hills High school and graduated in 1983; Scott attended San Diego State University where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Finance in 1988. During his time at SDSU, he was involved with Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) Fraternity. Scott’s fraternity brothers became some of his closest friends and remained so throughout his life.
