After completing his education, Scott felt it was time to explore the world and set about travelling across the globe to pursue his passion. A constant desire to seek out adventure and a thirst to discover his surroundings led him to Malaysia and eventually Sabah, where he has spent the last three years gaining hands-on experience on coral reef restoration and turtle rehabilitation. With this experience, he has taken on the responsibility of helping Gaya Island Resort, and YTL Hotels, to pursue an active role in conservation by implementing initiatives and setting up marine conservation programmes while assisting also in coral planting and rehabilitating the coral reef.
