What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
And Scottio Arnold knows this better than most.
Before he made his living falling down stairs, being hit by cars and lighting himself on fire (as a stunt man, of course), he grew up a very active and energetic child in a drug infested neighborhood of New Haven, Connecticut. Discovering hip hop, dance and martial arts at a local rec center was his escape.
At 19, he made the difficult decision to leave his family temporarily behind while he ventured to Los Angeles, California to build a new life for them and was introduced to a world he never even thought to dream of: that of a professional stunt man.
Scottio was determined to prove he was tough enough for the stunt world and with hard work and training, he ascended into stunt roles in various television programs, including HBO’s series TNT and CBS’ The District, and films, including The Salton Sea starring Val Kilmer and BD Wong.
Through devastating loss, marital strife and personal struggles, stunt work is what has driven and sustained Scottio.
Now at 52 years old, Scottio is more determined than ever to make his mark in the stunt world and continue doing what he loves, at any cost.
Scottio is joined by an experienced and enthusiastic team, with expertise in stunts, production and distribution.
