About Peter

6-year-old Peter learned two things from doing Bugs Bunny impressions for his family: that he loved performing and that carrots taste much better once they’ve been peeled. After playing the Scarecrow in his 3rd grade production of The Wizard of Oz, he decided that he would pursue a career in acting for the rest of his life. His parents were naturally super jazzed about this. Originally from Long Island, Peter has lived in NYC since beginning his undergraduate education at NYU’s Tisch School of the arts, where he learned the Meisner technique, screen acting, and just enough guitar to make friends in the dorm’s court yard. Today he is proud to be able to indulge both of his childhood aspirations as a voice-over artist and actor of the stage and screen. Despite his love of having a fun time in rehearsals and on set, he’s actually extremely professional and always prepared.
