Hi, I’m Scott.

A lifetime searching for purpose has led me here. I want to disrupt the status quo and bring positive change to the world by seeking and sharing knowledge.

The end of a long journey. 241 miles.

My Background

As a Soldier in the U.S. Army, I served in South Korea, Qatar, and Afghanistan. Personally inspired by mentoring young troops, I earned my Bachelor’s and Master’s in Education, teaching high school for five years. 
 
Now, I train and inspire employees for a local government to be better in their jobs and increasingly fulfilled in their lives.
 
To test my limits, I’ve run more than 15 ultramarathons, finishing all but four. My proudest accomplishment is finishing the 314-mile Last Annual Vol-State.
 
I attempted a pilgrimage along the Appalachian Trail, but a knee injury sent me home after 706 miles. I dream daily of those remaining 1500 miles.
 
Newly married in Orlando, Florida, these are my life’s guiding principles:
 
  • Success and significance are different things. Significance is about serving others.
  • Believe in something greater than yourself. I follow Jesus.
  • Bring a positive mindset and OWN your life.
  • If you’re not getting better each day, you’re getting worse.
  • Compounding always wins over the long-term.
