I’m Peter, a technology and online self-publishing enthusiast who enjoys traveling, exploring new places, taking photos, and trying new things.

Occupation: I’m a technical writer at Lantronix, primarily documenting IoT hardware.

Hobbies: My passions include photography; travelcosplay; exchanging mail, especially postcards; blogging; and cataloging.

Interests: I love live performances of all kinds, popup museums and interactive exhibits, local art, ska, Disney, Suburban Legends, The Aquabats, Greek classics, World of Warcraft, and science fiction.

Past work experience: I was a technical writer at SurePrep, documenting SaaS solutions. At Form10 Group, I installed rack servers and upgraded hardware for California DMVs as a field technician. At Toshiba, I wrote and voiced support videos with over 3.5 million views, wrote support articles with over 13 million views, helped customers over social media with technical issues. I was also a software development engineer at MeridianLink, developing SaaS tools.

Education: I have a B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering and minor in Classical Civilization from UC Irvine. I’m a member of the Tau Beta Pi engineering honor society.

Game journalism: I’m published on WoW Insider (now rolled into 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.

Interesting facts: I sold books to Kobe Bryant without realizing who he was; fed a bear; hiked through lava tubes; hiked at 12,470 feet; surfed with sea turtles; and had a photo I took, a photo of me, and my postcard collection shown in the OC Fair.
