Hi, I’m Scott.

Ultrarunner Goes to Key West
The end. Mile 241.

My lifelong search for purpose has led me here. I want to disrupt the status quo by helping others to grow intentionally and live generously.

Buddha said, “If you light a lamp for someone else it will also brighten your path.” 

I explore personal growth as a Christian who believes anything is possible, a veteran who adapts and overcomes all obstacles, and an ultrarunner just crazy enough to put it all to the test, like running 314 miles.

My Guiding Principles

  • Success and significance are different things. Significance is about serving others.
  • Believe in something greater than yourself. I follow Jesus.
  • Own your life.
  • If you’re not getting better each day, you’re getting worse.
  • Compounding always wins over the long-term.

My Background

As a Soldier, I’ve served in South Korea, Qatar, and Afghanistan. Inspired by mentoring troops, I earned my Bachelor’s and Master’s in Education, teaching high school for five years. 
 
Now, I train and inspire employees for Orange County Government to be better in their jobs and fulfilled in their lives.
 
In the pursuit of my own limits, I’ve run more than 16 ultramarathons, finishing all but four. A recent test of grit was a 35 mile run from my front door to the ocean.
 
I attempted a pilgrimage along the Appalachian Trail, but injury sent me home after 706 miles. I dream daily of those remaining 1500 miles.
 
Newly married in Orlando, Florida, I’m enjoying newfound opportunities to serve others by sharing my knowledge and experiences.
