Scott Bender was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. He has always be an adventurer – between traveling with his family and going to summer camps in Wisconsin and Minnesota, he knew there was much to explore in this world. Scott got into acting while at one of these summer camps, partially because he truly enjoyed being on stage, and partially because he knew that the camp play was performed at the girls camp across the lake, and they also go to to stop at McDonalds on their way back. He has been performing ever since.
Scott graduated from University of Colorado-Boulder with a degree in Film and slowly made his way to Los Angeles after a 4 month backpacking trip through the Middle-East, Indonesia, and Southeast Asia. He has lived in LA for 6 years and when he is not snapping food photos for his Locals Only (@LocalsOnlysb) food and travel youtube show, he is acting, writing, producing, or adventuring (@scottdbender).
