Hello, I'm Pete.

A photo of me and my girlfriend

I'm a cofounder at Astronomer, working to deliver the world's data via a portfolio of open-source and commercial products.

As I've watched the Astronomer team grow from 6 to 200 and beyond, I've worn quite a few different hats across our sales, product, and engineering teams. These days, I spend my time leading our Product organization, working with a talented team of engineers, designers, and product managers to empower data engineers around the world to build data products.

Spending most of my professional life surrounded by brilliant software engineers has made me realize one thing: I'm inspired by hands-on creators with unwavering belief in their ideas. I enjoy building tools that help empower those folks to create.

In a past life, I played football at the collegiate level and was a competitive ski racer. My academic years were spent toiling with physics and chemistry, but most of that mental real-estate has since been replaced by Stack Overflow answers.

Outside of work, I'm into vintage guitars, the state of Vermont (although I don't live there), music theory, exploring new places on skis, and the New York Mets.
