I'm the youngest child - that's me on the left:
After high school some friends and I started a band called For Amusement Only. We even had a song on Guitar Hero which might be my greatest achievement:
In 2005 some nice people gave me a job in advertising. Over the next 10 years I worked in London, Australia, Asia and the US, made a lot of work with a lot of terrific people and also won my share of irrelevant industry awards.
In 2015 I made the jump to directing. I paired up with Jeff Gonick, a Philadelphia 76ers fan, to form Jeff+Pete and together, we've made commercials for brands like American Express, Dr Pepper and Amazon to name just a few.
We write and direct lots of other things, too. None of which we're allowed to talk about but all of which we can't wait for you to see.
I also love editing. When I cut Jeff+Pete work it's because I'm a control freak. When I cut other filmmaker's work it's because the budget was terrible and I'm into doing favors for my friends. Every time though, I edit because I love discovering the best way to tell a story.
Also, here's a pic of the back of my head while talking to a very brave actor dressed only in his underpants.
Enough about me, let's make some things together!
