Peter is a legend! He's very creative and is able to manage any situation, no matter how high the pressure gets. I have worked as a UX designer, brand designer, web designer, and graphic designer under Peter's leadership of the dev team on multiple projects. He has extensive hands-on software engineering and development experience and is also very skilled at leading teams of developers. I honestly expect big things from him in the future, so I am going to be watching. I look forward to working with him again when the opportunity presents itself. Do not underestimate Peter Smith!

- Josiah Ludovico, Owner, JLU Design

I spent some time with Peter along with the other fine folks at Upstate Interactive as they were getting their studio off the ground. Peter is a great guy who works hard, gets tech, and is always coming up with new ideas. He has a passion for leadership and small companies, and it shows in his interactions with his co-founders and his peers.

- Brian Corrigan, VP and Head of Americas, PUBG

I worked a fair amount with Peter as a partner and sponsor. Not only is Peter highly intelligent, he is a great communicator and easy to work with. We collaborated on several content projects. He was great at working together to produce the best possible work product. I really enjoyed working with him and would be happy to do so again.

- Joe Eames, president at ng-conf

Peter values growth and supports his co-workers in finding ways to facilitate their goals in the workplace. When I worked with Peter, he always acted as my advocate with the rest of the upper management. I could always tell him about my goal, whether it was educational tools or pairing sessions with other devs, and he would find ways to make it happen.

- Sara McMullen, Software Engineer at Tandem

Peter is a genuine and caring manager that helped me grow as a software engineer. His willingness to take time each week to mentor me in not only coding, but effective communication has made me a better coder all around. More importantly, he listens to everyone's concerns and comes up with strategic ways to handle tough situations. I owe a lot of my success to Peter and whoever is lucky enough to work with someone as reliable as him will certainly have a bright future ahead!

- Vivian Sze, Software Engineer at GoodEggs

I worked with Peter over a span of three years building web and iOS applications. He served as both a Scrum Master and a lead engineer. Peter is a leader who knows how to run a team. He understands the importance of commending his coworkers in front of others. Peter has personally done this for me three times and I remember each instance like it was yesterday. Gestures like this go a long way in boosting morale and confidence. Peter made me feel valued as a designer. As an engineer, Peter was a man of execution and efficiency. I remember handing him a page of design discrepancies and watching him sort the entire list in under an hour. His focus, diligence, and velocity are unparalleled in this regard. Peter is also an inspiring visionary with tremendous foresight. He is often able to see what others cannot. The breadth of his experience spans across Angular apps, blockchain, AI, and more. This allows him to navigate complex problem spaces as gracefully as he performs calisthenics. Overall, Peter is someone who you never forget once you’ve had the pleasure of working with him. He is a rare mix of leadership sense, technical savvy, and business acumen. The skillset he possesses translates well across verticals so he will undoubtedly be an integral asset to any endeavor he joins in the future.
