Scott is passionate about health and fitness; he enjoys road cycling; being outdoors.  When he’s not in the gym, cycling around our beautiful city, or coaching others, he enjoys travel, food and wine, meeting new people, and spending time with his partner, David, and their two West Highland Terriers – Henry and Madie.

Scott and David have been visiting VLP for over 10 years and fell in love with the homes and neighborhood…in 2018 they purchased a home of their own on Rose Avenue. Scott is excited to join the VLPNO Board and looks forward to working with his neighbors to help improve our quality of life and community.
