Most recently (2016–2019) he has been part of the Vancouver Community College music program working on completing his degree in composition for contemporary music while performing and composing as a member of the VCC gamelan ensemble (Gamelan Si Pawit) as well as the VCC Latin jazz ensemble.

Scott is flexible and experienced in all styles of bass. He has toured throughout Western Canada, the USA, played in Southeast Asia and has performed in venues such as The Center for the Performing Arts (Vancouver), Richards On Richards (Vancouver), the ACT Theatre (Maple Ridge, BC), The Cloverdale Rodeo, the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the Surrey Fusion Festival, the Ponderosa Festival and a house gig at Chilkoot Charlies (Anchorage, AK).
