Pucciatti grew up in the Chambersburg section of Trenton. He attended Trenton State College (now The College of New Jersey) and earned his teaching degree in music. He has taught in the Trenton schools for more than 30 years, currently teaching at an urban high school not far from where he spent his childhood. He met his wife Sandra Milstein-Pucciatti in the music department of Trenton State, where she was working on her graduate degree in music after earning her undergraduate degree from Temple University. Together, they established Boheme Opera NJ in 1981 and dedicated themselves to making the art form of opera more accessible to audiences of all ages.
