Peter is an iOS developer at Quizzify, which teaches people to save money and be healthier by avoiding unnecessary and wasteful healthcare. After studying economics and history at Yale, he worked for five years in business consulting, including at IBM and Deloitte. Deciding that was too abstract and wanting to make real things, he founded his first startup, Lifestreams. It created a cloud back-end for card based UX/UIs, accessible via an API. When he realized that entrepreneurship is vastly more fun and better as a developer, he started learning online at Codecademy, proceeded to study frontend web development at Thinkful, and graduated from the Flatiron School in New York. He and his girlfriend live with a cat named Brooklyn and a hedgehog named Lucy in Manhattan.
