As Director of Creative Development for AKQA, Peter has the privilege of sitting right smack in the middle of the visual designers and back-end developers everyday. His San Francisco development team, which primary consists of Flash developers, video freaks, animators, interface and interactive technologists, is tasked with pushing creative development and innovation for the company. With a background in design and computer science, he is passionate about making all the pieces work together.
He has taught Flash and other web technologies for over five years and his other interests/experience includes video, sound, 3D, Ajax, mobile, Silverlight, WPF, AIR and all those Adobe tools. Although he tries to keep the blink tags out of his head, with over ten years in” the biz”, he can still remember the day he created his first animated gif.
