23 years Network experience: ABC Sports, ABC News, ABC News Productions, NBC News, Dateline NBC, NBC News Productions, Peacock Productions. B.A., Philosophy and Economics, Colgate University.
Peter loves travel, culture, nature, music, sports and the next adventure. He’s been face to face with both serial killers and world leaders, and he has some insane stories from his production travels. He may have uncovered a hushed mob hit in Las Vegas during a development trip – a trip where Peter also discovered and signed a then unknown Rick Harrison, now of Pawn Stars fame, to a development deal that Peacock Productions passed on. Peter’s unending quest is to combine irresistible characters and narrative with stunning cinematography and the latest artistic technology.
