Peter has over 25 years in the design industry, 13 years in collegiate design education and has been skating since the late 80s. He has a great passion for skateboarding, graphic design, music and family that he uses as creative inspiration for this new project.
In middle school, Peter found skateboarding and was introduced to new types of music through skateboarding, specifically, punk, hardcore and heavy metal and this was the beginning! Peter loved the graphics on the boards, t-shirts, album covers, stickers and the skate magazines. He couldn’t get enough of it.
That feeling and love of skateboarding, music and design have never left and is still used as a huge source of inspiration for Peter and the projects he creates.
Peter lives in Orlando, Florida [nowhere near Disney] and is a native Floridian. Yes, they do exist! He is married to an awesome wife and has one amazing daughter. Besides skating and design, Peter enjoys spending time with his family, movies, going to concerts, eating and even cooking once in a while.
He says he owes a lot to skateboarding. It has been the catalyst for many things in his life—his career
as a designer, this book project, the music he listens too and even how he observes the city landscape. Skateboarding has given Peter an unlimited source of inspiration.
Now go skate + escape!
