Hi I'm Pete.
Currently based in Brooklyn, NY.
Originally from Chicago, IL.
I grew up idolizing the Coen brother's films; my favorite movies of all time are 'Fargo' and 'No Country for Old Men'. Being from Chicago, the home to Second City and unlimited comedy/improv talent, my other favorite director growing up was John Hughes. "The Breakfast Club" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" were major influences on my life. In the documentary world, "Hoop Dreams" inspired me to pursue non-fiction storytelling, and Steve James is also a major influence.
