RICK SCOTCH MEDIA

My name is Richard McDaniel, but I'm better known as Rick Scotch and I'm a CREATIVE ENTREPRENEUR.

I spent more than a decade in the financial investment world as a market strategist and financial advisor. As I was moving forward in life, I felt like something was missing and began my search for my true calling. What I realized was that I'd been a "CREATIVE" pretty much my whole life. So in 2016, I decided to leave the finance industry, start my creative entrepreneurial journey, and develop my skills in becoming a creative professional. 


As a creative entrepreneur, I have a history of starting multiple businesses, mostly small hustles but big dreams. I have failed many times but learned a bunch. Now I’m here today, creating a company I’ve been training and building towards my whole life.

I design, make videos and share stories.

In 2018, I started a media project called ScotchParlor.com, which continues today as a lifestyle media retail website that shares stories around inspiring people through podcasting, videography, and photography. Scotch Parlor is a place where I'm able to grow my creative skills, all while meeting amazing people. It's a platform where books, booze, goods, and inspiring people come together.

I am a big believer in self-teaching, learning, adapting, and being fearless when you try new things. All my ventures, jobs, and personal experiences have lead me to what I genuinely love doing, and that's designing, creating content, and sharing stories with a camera. I love every aspect of being in a creative zone and building a business around it. 

My mission for Rick Scotch Media is to help people, small businesses, and brands create storytelling content to share with their audiences. 

Life is good,
Rick Scotch
