Scott was born and raised in San Diego. He is relatively new to pools, having spent over 24 years in the flooring industry. At Payan, “Scott O” handles an array of duties that keep our Service department running smoothly. He is always ready for anything!
He loves the desert and spontaneous trips to Las Vegas, but he is just as happy working around the house or in the garage. In his spare time, Scott likes to play softball … and the guitar.
