During his time there, he made several more films and worked for Bobby Moresco, the Oscar-winning writer of Crash.  Soon after graduating in 2010, Peter got his first big break when he was hired by the rock group Chicago to film their 2011 World Tour.  Through this opportunity he was able to work 

with the likes of recording legend Phil Ramone, actor Joe Mantegna and SNL cast member Kyle Mooney.

 

In 2013, he began production on Now More Than Ever: The History of Chicago, the official documentary about the rock group Chicago.  He served as director, editor and producer on the film, which was premiered through CNN Films on New Year's Day 2017 to #1 ratings.

 

Peter is currently developing two exciting documentaries and a feature narrative, to be announced soon.

 

He will move forward and make narrative feature films in the style of his favorite filmmakers such as the Coen Brothers, Martin Scorsese and Paul Thomas Anderson.
