Scott was a food enthusiast and he loved being an amateur food critic, especially of his Uncle JoJo and Mom’s cooking. He was very good at this due to his passion for food and his creative writing skills. He enjoyed movies, podcasts, kayaking, music, art, reading and animals. He loved the NY Giants, football Sundays, fantasy football, the Yankees, and Orioles. He cherished spending time with his family and lifelong NJ friends. But most of all, Scott loved being with his best friend and brother Matthew. Scott was ecstatic about becoming an uncle for the first time and already talked about how much he was going to teach his nephew! He will be missed by his beloved four-legged friends Eddie, Jack and Kitty.
