Tim Colbert is an award-winning video producer, publicist, and brand communication specialist, with two decades of experience in Pittsburgh’s non-profit performing and cultural arts sector and at one of the country’s leading B2B marketing public relations firms.

His heroically varied career encompasses everything from launching the world’s first BPA-free plastic to publicizing the world premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson’s King Hedley II. Along the way, Tim introduced the world’s first water-based drilling fluid system, led the team that rebranded Day-Glo, and dressed up as a giant gecko.

The Cleveland native has deep family roots in Southwestern Pennsylvania and hair with rapidly greying roots.
