A Little About Scott

Scott holds a rich athletic history, expanding into a broad tapestry of multi-sport events, including seven visits to the Boston Marathon, two-time IRONMAN Hawaii Qualifier, and winner of the locally prestigious Sea2Summit.

Scott’s multi-sport lifestyle is ingrained in a ‘Purple Patch mindset’ with the development of his successful multi-sport coaching company and becoming the race director of his very first triathlon race, looking to embrace the development of the sport regionally and offer a great experience to those interested in starting in the sport.

Scott displays strong leadership and wisdom in the sport and is an integral part of the ongoing development of Purple Patch curriculum of education and coaching methodology.  With his strong business background and deep experience and expertise in the sport, he has quickly become a key asset to the Purple Patch team.
