An Ear for Business
Peter studied electrical engineering at The University of Pennsylvania and found acoustics as a way to merge his interest in music with his capabilities in math and science. After 10 years of experience in the industry, Peter attained an MBA to develop a deeper understanding of building and running a business. As the acoustics discipline lead at TEECOM, he sets standards, maintains processes, and oversees projects. Peter also leads the TEECOMadvance team, which focuses on immersive audiovisual designs, requiring a thoughtful approach to budgetary planning, building integration, and systems installation and commissioning.
Meals on Wheels
Meals on Wheels of Alameda County is a program that provides nutritious meals and wellness checks for homebound seniors. After helping a local BBQ catering business find and build out a commercial kitchen, Peter joined the Board of Directors for Meals on Wheels of Alameda County to champion food advocacy and lead a fundraising cycling event. He went on to become President of the Board and is proud to have nearly doubled the organization’s annual revenue in a two-year tenure. He continues to support the program as President Emeritus, connecting the mission with corporate and healthcare organizations.
Theory to Techno
A lifelong music enthusiast, Peter started his musical journey studying classical piano for over 10 years and a music minor in college. His journey as a listener, composer, and performer led him to experiment with electronic music, and he continues to merge his songwriting with loop-based and sample-based music vignettes. He shares a home recording studio in Oakland’s Jack London Square that serves as a dedicated practice room for professional and hobbyist musicians.
Peter grew up as an athlete, playing ball sports for every season, competing in the tennis circuit, and becoming a junior tennis coach during high school summers. He continued with club tennis in college, and as an avid runner, began to transition into marathons. Soon after he graduated college, Peter qualified for and ran the Boston Marathon twice. He also competed in triathlon races for several years. While these endurance events required intensive training and nutrition regimens for physical conditioning, Peter relied on mindfulness and visualization techniques to persevere during the events. He continues to run, cycle, and swim to stay active.
