Peter became one of my closest media relationships while leading marketing and public relations at Qualcomm for more than six years. Peter was always fair and worked hard to understand the facts and draw logical conclusions. He always told "THE" story not "A" story. I relied on him for guidance on issues we were facing, and regularly asked him how to be most effective in communicating with the media. We developed a very trusting relationship which I still value to this day given how rare that is to achieve.

Worked with Peter most of his years at Bloomberg, including the periods when he was a tech reporter and a speed desk editor. He's an excellent utility infielder: Peter can play all the bases -- write, edit, while working quickly and accurately. He is everything you'd want in a journalist; he really loves and values news. He speaks Spanish and has an extensive knowledge of Latin America (knowledge which I tapped a number of times).

Peter is a talented journalist with a nose to uncover news. His passion is all things finance. Peter demonstrated his broad-based financial knowledge everyday while at Bloomberg News. Peter's strengths lie in his markets knowledge where he was able to help traders worldwide with flash headlines as a member of the speed desk.
