As Associate Director of Operations, Scott brings his background in arts and culture management to the administration and strategic development of the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities.
Since joining the Council in 2018, he has led efforts to integrate evaluative principles to strategic planning, budgeting, and operations processes; developed meaningful opportunities for interns to gain experience in the humanities; and managed transitions of staff and programs. Scott’s balanced approach to strategic planning has enabled the Council to be responsive to our community and navigate the ongoing challenges presented through 2020, ensuring that the organization remains strong in order to be able to best serve our grantees, partners, and community.
Originally from Seattle, Scott came to New England to study at Bowdoin College, receiving a BA in Government and Legal Studies. With a passion for performing arts, he then pursued an MFA in acting from the Brown University/Trinity Repertory Program. He has worked and performed with numerous theater companies in New England and New York, gaining teaching, producing, and administrative experience along the way. Prior to joining the Council, Scott worked with the arts service nonprofit Fractured Atlas in New York.
In 2016, Scott and his family happily returned to Providence from New York. He is thrilled to support the Council’s broader mission of civic and community engagement in Rhode Island.
