About me

Born in Bronxville, New York, Dec. 31. 1974.


Peter started out making coffee and sandwiches for the crew on a Danish talk-show. Short after he began working in the camera department on television. After a couple of years he became a clapper/loader on film. He then became an assistant cameraman and worked on numerous commercials, music videos and feature films.


He shot some documentaries and short films as a photographer and then switched to the director’s department assisting some of Denmark's most successful directors.


In 2004 Peter made his debut as a commercial director.


In 2010 he took a break from commercials to focus on directing a series for Danish TV called Rytteriet (The Cavalry). The TV-Series became the most watched comedy series on Danish TV that year and won the prestigious TV Festival Award for best comedy series in 2011.


In late 2012 Peter and the two creators of Rytteriet reunited to develop the follow up to their successful first season. Not wanting to repeat themselves they wrote 8 new episodes together, that took the series away from the sketch-show genre and into a more continuous narrative story. The show went on air in August 2013 on National Danish Television.


In January 2014 Rytteriet won a Danish Academy Award (Robert) for best short format tv-series. In August it won the TV Festival Award for best comedy series for the second time.
