It's no secret Pittsburgh has some of the richest sports history in the country. Each month we ask one of our favorite Pittsburghers:
What else makes this city great?
How Long: 4 years
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in the UK on the Isle of Wight but was born in the North of England and, being of Irish decent, I spent most of my adult life in Ireland (Dublin).
I came to Pittsburgh in 2006 with a touring play. I was invited back year by year and, having decided that I needed a new challenge as I was getting older, I chose Pittsburgh as my new home in 2010. The city amazed and attracted me with its world of art and culture in a small but perfectly balanced city.
Besides our sports, what do you think makes PGH great?
Pittsburgh, rather like my home city of Dublin, is a small city with a huge heart. It is vibrant, charming, friendly, and full of creativity. It is a city that pulses with artistic creativity. It feels like home.
