As Operations Officer, Scott brings his background in arts and culture management to the logistical and strategic development of the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities.
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.
Scott’s interest in arts and culture led him to the arts service nonprofit Fractured Atlas, which assists artists nationwide with the business aspects of their work. He became the Director of the Fractured Atlas Insurance Program, which provides accessible and affordable coverage for individual artists and organizations, and managed their visa letter service, which assists international artists applying to enter the U.S. This role provided him with significant experience managing projects, data, budgets, and staffing.
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.
