Scott Payne was born and raised in Maple Ridge. Scott attended Simon Fraser University, completing a Bachelor of Arts in History in 2011. He then attended law school at the University of British Columbia.

During Scott’s time at the University of British Columbia, he assisted aspiring real estate licensees as a Law Tutor at the Sauder School of Business. He also volunteered with the Law Students’ Legal Advice Program, providing free legal services to low-income clients.

Scott enjoys reading history books and classics, jogging around the Lower Mainland and playing squash. However, Scott’s main source of exercise is chasing after his infant son, James.
