Pete's just a regular Minnesota guy that grew up on the north-side of the Cities (Fridley), spent some quality time at the U of M, chills on the weekends at the family cabin near Duluth, bleeds Vikings purple, and misses the North Stars. He's known for his short attention span; and enjoys Eric Church, Johnny Cash, Zac Brown, Kid Rock, Pink Floyd, 80s hair bands, coffee, beer, scotch, and long sunset walks on the beach. (One of those isn't true.) Pete's a two-time cancer survivor now (Colorectal 2002, Kidney 2014), and knows that life is damn short -- so he's a believer that we should be playing as hard and as often as we can.
