Scott moved to Sandpoint, from Phoenix, AZ, in May of 2022 to start work with James A. Sewell & Associates. He loves all things outdoors. Summers are spent camping, fishing, and foraging. In the fall, you will find him in the woods hunting. Winters are spent snowboarding at Schweitzer.

Scott and his wife, Rylan, have five amazing kids. While life can be a bit chaotic, running between school, sporting activities, karate, and dance, they make time to spend outdoors exploring everything North Idaho has to offer.

Scott was hired on at Sewell as a Survey Technician, which still takes up most of his time. In recent months he has taken on the role of Land Use Planner.

He started land surveying while he was in college. While Scott’s major was not in that particular field, he stayed in the industry and has more than 15 years of experience.

When asked, Scott states that his first and foremost biggest accomplishment revolves around his family, “Rylan and I have some really great children that we are very proud of. As far as accomplishments at work go, I would have to say the diversity of workload I’m able to accomplish.”

Why do you love working at JAS?

JAS is such a cool place to come to everyday. First of all, you are right in the middle of some of the most beautiful country in the world. The diversity of projects you get to work on is really cool, you could be working on a lake front property one day, and on top of the mountain the next. I also love the family type atmosphere we have as well. We all get along and treat each other with respect.
