Peter lives in Seattle, WA.

About Me

I was born and raised in Newton, Massachusetts. I moved to Seattle in 2004 to attend the University of Washington, where I studied history and music. I've had the good fortune to work with Earshot Jazz over the course of two festival seasons, in addition to assisting as an editor for the organization's monthly magazine. I also work for the Seattle Opera, where my efforts to replace the Ring Cycle with Trillium R have so far been unsuccessful.
