Your friend Peter

Hey, I’m Peter!

I’m a technology and online self-publishing enthusiast who enjoys traveling, exchanging postcards, blogging, cooking, taking a ton of photos, and trying new things. I love live performances of all kinds, especially any featuring my talented friends. I like ska, Disney, The Aquabats, Star Wars, Greek classics, and a lot more.

Currently I work in support for a tax-related software company. I’ve worked as a social media specialist, community manager, and technical writer at Toshiba. In my five years there, my support videos had over 3.5 million views, and my articles had over 13 million views. Sometimes Toshiba’s engineering team even took my design ideas. Able to take handwritten notes on your Toshiba tablet without unlocking it? That was my idea!

I installed rack servers and related hardware in DMVs all across California, developed software under the software-as-a-service model, and reviewed tax data. I’m a University of California, Irvine graduate with a B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering and minor in Classical Civilization, and I’m a member of the Tau Beta Pi engineering honor society.

I’ve dabbled in games journalism; I’ve been published on WoW Insider, Engadget, and Game Boyz and was a guest on the Twisted Nether Blogcast. I’ve attended press parties by Bethesda and THQ and partied at the Russian Consulate in San Francisco with Russian game publisher 1C. I sold books to Kobe Bryant without realizing who he was, visited nine countries, fed a bear, hiked through lava tubes, hiked at 12,470 feet, and surfed with sea turtles. I’ve exchanged snail mail with 52 countries and hope that number grows.
