Terry Cangelosi joined Americans for the Arts in August 2015.  As the Operations Manager, Terry is responsible for managing the organization's day-to-day operations, which includes office management, office services, the internship program as well as stage management at our numerous meetings and events.

Terry is charged with ensuring staff have a creative, efficient, safe and fun office work environment.  This includes continually striving to educate staff on our emergency response plan, integrating our internship program into the overall work of the staff and working as part of the staff driven professional development team. Terry also heads the Social Committee, a committee designed to provide staff with entertainment, food, and opportunities to get to know each other.

Prior to joining Americans for the Arts, Terry worked for five years at Imagination Stage, a children’s theatre in the DC area.  Beginning as an apprentice, Terry worked his way through a facilities management trajectory, moving all the way up to the role of Assistant General Manager.  Terry received his undergraduate degree in Theatre Arts from Kalamazoo College in Michigan.  Outside of work, Terry regularly plays in euchre tournaments and stage manages for a local dance company. Terry’s proudest accomplishment is nicknaming a professional baseball player, Roger “The Shark” Bernadina.
