Scott Kelly was laid off in July of 2008 from his job as a construction supervisor. After many frustrating months painting and remodeling bathrooms, he challenged himself to get his general contractor's license and start his own construction business. A friend mentioned to him news about the new CEWTP program at Long Beach Community College and the rest is history. He got his first job remodeling a 90 year old Spanish house which he says allowed him to apply the skills learned in the program.
As a result, Scott recently pitched an idea to a friend who had recently been cast on a new show on Bravo called Million Dollar Decorator. As a result he appeared this Spring in segments of the show featuring the decorator Nathan Turner and also recently remodeled Dr. Robert Rey's office in Beverly Hills, also known as Dr. 90210! He says, "I couldn't have dreamed for better results!" This year he became involved in the Energy Upgrade California Program.
