Friday night was the Pittsburgh Magazine 40 Under 40 award ceremony, where I received a nice chunk of acrylic with my name engraved on it and shook hands with some amazing folks. You can see the article with snippets about all 40 honorees here and this nice video below.
I was thrilled to be included among these folks, including some really inspiring women like Dana Brown the Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Center for Women and Politics at Chatham University, Anne Flynn Schlicht the Assistant Director of the Center for Women’s Entrepreneurship, and Melanie R. Brown an Education Program Officer for The Heinz Endowments. I was a bit disappointed to notice that I was the only arts professional represented. Pittsburgh has a vibrant creative community and they deserve to be recognized. The nominations for 2015 are now open, so please nominate one of the many deserving arts members here.
