I have been Development Director at Rome Capitol Theatre, an historic movie house in upstate New York, since 2007. Like many development professionals I have met, I took the position with no prior experience, but with a passion for our organization and a desire to make great things happen for my community. This blog came from my desire to help my peers navigate the world of arts funding, keep up on news, and forge and strengthen the relationships needed to do great work for arts and culture in the United States and around the world.
I love interaction and engagement, and if you’re in the development field, chances are that relationship-building is your business! Feel free to chime in with ideas, comments, and alternate viewpoints, or contact me directly. See you on the blog!
