Hello, I'm Peter. I'm married, with two young kids. If you're my friend, you already know me. If you're not, that's more than you wanted to know. :-)

My wife, Christy, has released the second Trinka book, Trinka and the Hundred Languages. You can find out more about her book at www.joneschristy.com.


I studied electrical engineering at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois from 1993-1997, and graduated with a B.S.E.E. That summer, I began my career as a test development engineer at Maxim Integrated, where I've worked ever since.

With two young children, much of my free time involves building LEGOs® and watching lots of kids shows. (Odd observance: our kids' favorite shows are almost all Canadian.)

My favorite genre is speculative fiction (fantasy and science fiction).

One of my favorite authors is Stephen Lawhead. While I was in college, I co-founded and provided technical support for a Lawhead mailing list. With such lists being out of vogue, it has been shut down, but I still maintain a list of his books, with back-cover blurbs; that list also includes his collaboration with musical artists Jeff Johnson and Brian Dunning, and his son Ross's books as well.

Notice, I don't count my "social" section as fun. :-)

I'm a geek, an engineer, and a dad. My "geeky dad" pages are some of the things that come about because of one or more of those attributes. :-)
