Scott was raised in the city of New Orleans on a steady diet of slasher flicks and foreign films. Hurricane Katrina chased him to Austin, Texas, where he now resides with his wife Julia and their two Boston Terriers, Spencer and Sydney.

He has maintained a weblog since 2001, with the current incarnation being Reelist.
