Scott

Apprentice Paint & Varnish

Scott was raised in the Metro Detroit area, but had the good fortune of spending his weekends and summers in northern Michigan. In college, Scott studied psychology with a specialization in cognitive neuroscience as well as philosophy. While psychology and philosophy interested him, he found woodworking and painting to be his true calling.

When Scott isn’t learning the latest and greatest paint and varnish techniques, you can find him outdoors. He has a passion for hunting, fishing paddling and backpacking. He spent many years working in Alaska leading groups of at-risk youth on backcountry canoe expeditions!

  • Born in: Grosse Pointe, Michigan
  • Studied: Michigan State University
  • Favorite projects to work on: Everything and anything!
  • Favorite Fundamental: Make Quality Personal & Practice Continuous Improvement
  • Best thing about working at Van Dam: Easily the people and the level of craftsmanship that they hold themselves to
