Scott has called his work with SMRF to conserve recharge land, ” the most meaningful work I have done in my life.” A realtor and broker by trade for the past 22 years, Scott has patiently and loyally guided SMRF through several land transactions, including our most recent land swap along Sink Creek. These properties, conserved for perpetuity, will forever help protect the river and provide public lands and trails for local residents. The father of two, Scott is motivated to leave this world a better place for the next generation and believes we are at a tipping point when it comes to groundwater in Central Texas and the Hill Country.
Scott has spent numerous hours finding conservation buyers, showing the properties and helping SMRF wade through reams of documents. We are extremely grateful for his work and his sage advice. It takes a special person to convince buyers how important conservation is in these critical areas and Scott has immersed himself in knowledge about spring low, recharge and the value of protecting important areas for our long term interests.
Raised in Austin, Scott spent his time collecting fossils and fishing along Walnut and Brushy creek which spurned him toward biology at ACU where he got into biking and competitive cycling. Now Scott spends his free time mountain biking, caving, backpacking and mountaineering with a renewed appreciation for the work he does to create green spaces especially as our region swells with development and industry. SMRF can not thank him enough for his dedication to our mission to protect the springs and their flow.
