A native Iowan Scott Schmidt's interest in art and design began at the age of eight when he asked for, and received, his first drawing book and drawing tools. This soon developed into an interest for the visual arts, which in turn led him to his college career where he earned his degree in Commercial Art. Scott's other love, computers, fit nicely within the burgeoning field of digital imaging, which overnight revolutionized the graphics and design industry. After graduation Scott accepted a position with a prestigious Denver, Colorado graphics house where he was continually promoted. From there Scott moved to Southern California where he was appointed Graphics Director of an International fitness publication. Scott's desire to leave the hectic bustle of California and reestablish his Midwest roots brought him back to Northeast Iowa. Scott brings a prodigious amount of experience in the ever-changing world of e-commerce and e-marketing to Jackson's.
