Pittsburgh Musical Theater (PMT) is a non-profit arts education organization committed to youth development. We cultivate a diverse creative community and future leaders with transferable life skills through a uniquely-designed convergence of training, mentorships, and professional performances. In a nurturing environment that promotes wellness, safety, and freedom of expression, our integrated opportunities for young artists and local professionals create quality productions for all audiences, foster a community of belonging, and enhance the vibrancy of our region.

Our Board of Directors, leadership and administrative team are fully committed to carrying out the objectives of this plan and are focused on the future, including a return to full performances, expansion of our educational programs, facility improvements, and most importantly a safe and inclusive environment for all.

I have over 25 years’ experience working in the world of community and economic development for the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh (URA) including the last three years as Business Lending Manager. I take pride in helping City of Pittsburgh entrepreneurs and business owners obtain financing to start up or expand their businesses. Prior to that, my career was mainly in banking and finance.

As a lover of music and theatre I’m so thrilled to support PMT. I have been a subscriber and advocate of this organization for over 20 years. I’m always amazed at the talent of the kids under PMT’s stellar programming and guidance. Ironically, one of the first neighborhoods I was introduced to when joining the URA was the West End and who knew that it would later be home to PMT!
