Hired: July 1998
The son of Czech immigrants, Pete is a first generation, American-born Fabian. He has a relatively small family here in the United States, speaks Czech fluently, and has visited cousins in the Czech Republic many times. He tries to make it
back to the homeland every three years or so. In the meantime, Pete can be spotted with his wife Lindsey, his dog, his cat, and his beautiful girl Annika ? the newest addition to the Fabian family in 2005 ? all in their homey domain in New Brighton.
? University of Minnesota, School of Design Communication: B.A. in Graphic Design, with an emphasis in advertising.
Equipped with his artistic sensibility, entrepreneurial spirit, and graphic design know-how, Pete started his own business creating web sites. He left his small business endeavor after three years to be the webmaster for the rising star of the hair care products industry, Aveda. After a year of smelling like rosemary mint pine needles, Pete left Aveda to work in his beloved hometown at Risdall Advertising.
Glaring at people who pronounce his last name "Fabe-u-lous."
Discovering new exercise programs ? like chasing Annika everywhere. Ah, sigh, the life of a Fabian Father.
If pressed, Pete will break down and confess that when he's not playing golf, tennis or basketball he actually leads a rather dull life.
