A passionate philanthropist, Scott is actively involved in many charitable organizations, most notably the Chris Carrino Foundation for FSHD and the First Responders Children’s Foundation. Scott joined the latter organization’s board in 2015 and was recognized as their inaugural Corporate Hero in 2019.
Ever since the company’s inception in 2008, a business Scott co-founded with his wife, INVNT’s Chief Operating Officer, Kristina McCoobery, the goal has always been to apply a strategic and creative led approach to every project, a move that enables the agency to challenge and change the perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors of those audiences essential to client success.
With Scott at the helm, INVNT immediately challenged the core industry model, creating a true live brand storytelling agency™ that disrupted the traditional approach to how brand events were created, designed, budgeted, and delivered. Today INVNT has over 100 full time “INVNTrs” and operates across eight offices, five countries and four continents.

He most recently delivered a presentation on the post-digital shift and how live drives all social engagement as part of George Mason University’s inaugural Mason Collective Impact Speaker Series, which addressed the overarching topic of ‘The Power and Direction of Social Media.’
