Scott Whisler


I’m a family man, Marine Corps veteran, and outdoorsman. I’ve been writing for Task & Purpose since mid-2021 with a focus on the outdoors, fitness, and shooting sports. 


  • Interests: Camping, hiking, strength training, fitness, shooting sports
  • Publication history: Task & Purpose, The Drive, Carbibles



Writing for Task & Purpose is my first professional role as a writer and I’m very excited to be on this team adding value to our readers. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest where I developed a love for the outdoors before joining the Marine Corps in 2006. Serving as an Infantry Marine built deep respect for the outdoors and shooting sports that I’ve carried on after leaving the military in 2011. It was during my transition that I learned about strength training and became passionate about fitness. All of these experiences have shaped my personal philosophy and outlook on life, which I try to share through my writings so that anyone reading them can make the best decision for them.
