Moment that sparked your passion

From a young age I have always loved learning about the process of creating movies, tv shows, music, and other media content. I was the kid that listened to the director’s commentary on DVDs nonstop and would read about the writing process for a tv show or album. I think the natural evolution of my interests lead me to seek out the world where those things are actually created was always the plan.

Desert island movie

This one is so tough and it would be hard to pick just one. The Prestige / Shawshank Redemption / The Departed

Favorite Quote

Too long to type here, but the poem “If” by Rudyard Kipling.

Personal Hobbies

I love hiking and camping. Riding bikes with Mae and cooking. I love reading and listening to podcasts (mainly history ones). Drinking good bourbon and watching movies/tv. I buy art when it catches my eye.

Favorite Childhood Memory

Hmmm “Childhood” I take to mean anything before High School. I would say just my collective summers. We always had family road trips, biking around with my friends playing pickup baseball, basketball, football, and soccer. Swimming at the city pool and having camp outs. I was blessed with a safe and fun childhood.

Best quality others notice

I hope that others notice that I genuinely care for my family, friends, coworkers, and people in general. That my kindness sets the tone for how I build relationships.

Favorite Director

Martin Scorsese or Christopher Nolan or David Fincher

Favorite Genre

I like them all.

Dream travel destination

Japan or Patagonia and I would take my wife, MaeLyda.

Favorite TV Show

Too many to name – I really loved Devs, but Parks and Rec might be the winner for a fun watch.

When asked: “If you were a piece of filmmaking gear, what would you be?” Pete said: “IMAX Camera

“Assuming time travel is possible… what would 10-years-from-now version of you tell you today?” Pete said: “Slow down, take a breath, and appreciate every moment.”

“What is the coolest thing that’s happened to you?” Pete said: “Marrying my wife but pre-marriage it would have to be watching the 2011 St. Louis Cardinals win the world series from 9 rows behind home plate at game 7.”

Thanks for being unapologetically you, Pete.
