He is the RBCM Vice President of Collections, Knowledge and Engagement.

At the RBCM Scott is responsible for developing the museum’s collection and knowledge resources. He also designs and presents exhibitions that are as engaging as they are innovative.
The Royal BC Museum communicates knowledge of B.C.’s natural and human history. UNESCO’s (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) focus is world peace through understanding of diversity.
