Hey, stranger. I'm Peter. Or Pete. Up to you. I'm from Pennsylvania and live in San Francisco. I prefer vinyl, Scotch, and James Murphy is my spirit animal. If you're having trouble finding me it's likely that I'm swimming in the Pacific Ocean.

I’m reading On Trails: An Exploration, by Robert Moor, by myself, and Seven Pillars of Wisdom, by T.E. Lawrence, to my son.

I'll be in Green Bay, Wisconsin, December 10th - 12th.
