Peter’s journey has taken him from the war zone of Beirut to the war rooms of two presidential campaigns. An American born in Lebanon, he moved to New York to study philosophy at NYU and has gone on to become an outspoken activist, described by the NY Times as “one of the most prominent political bloggers in the nation.” He has advised presidential and congressional candidates, and is the author of Digital Civil War: Confronting the Far-Right Menace.
Before entering the political arena, Peter was a sought-after keyboardist and remixer, appearing on recordings by Bjork, Miles Davis, Diana Ross, Janet Jackson, and Mariah Carey, among other popular artists. A pioneering member of New York's early house music scene, he produced three #1 Billboard Club singles and was signed to Columbia/Sony and MCA/Universal. In 2020, he released Devotion Work, an album of solo piano meditations.
