About

Peter began his journalism career as an undergraduate student at Newcastle University. For three years, he served as a reporter, columnist and sub-editor for the university’s newspaper The Courier.

In London, he worked as an editorial trainee on the sports and news desks at The Guardian, Sky Sports and Sky News where he contributed several articles.

Whether using a camera, curious tech gadgets or mere pen and paper, Peter loves exploring the context behind the news and capturing unique moments from everyday life.
