From 2014 - 2016 he was the director and co-curator of Gallery 295 in Vancouver, BC, an exhibition space that focused on emerging photographic practices and discourses. He was recently a visiting full-time faculty member at Concordia University and previously held a sessional faculty position at Emily Carr University of Art + Design.

Scott Gallery (CA), Eastern Bloc (CA), FIELD Contemporary (CA), Interstitial (USA), and the FOFA Gallery (CA). A selected Canadian finalist for Flash Forward’s 2017 emerging photography competition, in 2015 he was nominated for Henry Art Gallery's BRINK award. His work was also featured as the cover for Hong-Kong based Pipeline Magazine’s 2014 Juried Photography Issue.
