Scott was born and raised along the Jersey Shore where he fell in love with long distance running.  This led him to the University of Tennessee where he was a 4 year Letterman in Cross Country and Track & Field.  Before turning his attention to triathlon he posted personal best times of 29:12 for 10km, 1:05:40 for the half marathon, and a 2:24 marathon.  In 2009 Scott was put in touch with legendary triathlon coach Brett Sutton.  He was invited to train with Brett and his former squad team TBB.  Scott spent 5 years under the watchful eye of Coach Sutton.  In 3 years time, Brett took Scott from a development athlete with just 1 skill, running, to a podium placing iron distance athlete.  Brett gave him the nickname 'The Animal' for his strong work ethic and ability to chew through sessions day after day. 2012 was Scott's best year thus far, which saw him climb the podium in several events around the world, including Ironman Florida where he set a Personal Best Time of 8:09 for the distance.  


Scott's Professional racing days are now behind him as he has turned his attention towards 100% full time coaching where he oversees the day to day training of his elite squad which is based in San Diego during the winter months and Park City during the summer months He credits Brett and his methods for much of his success both as an athlete and coach!
