Over the years, Peter has appeared in shows such as The Detectives, Murdoch Mysteries, SUITS, Orphan Black, Degrassi The Next Generation, Saving Hope, Hell On Wheels, Flashpoint, Nikita, and many more.

As the President-At-Large and creative head of BigTime, Peter has produced, created, co-written, directed and performed in thousands of productions all over the world, entertaining hundreds of thousands of people. Some of Peter’s favorite BigTime highlights include entertaining the Canadian Forces personnel in the Persian Gulf, producing and directing a stage show for 5000 guests at the National Hockey League’s 50th Anniversary All-Star Reception, and writing and performing shows for the Maho Beach Resort in St. Maarten, N.A.
In March 2020, when Covid-19 brought live, in-person entertainment to a standstill, Peter quickly pivoted and created ZoomMystery.com; a tremendously successful online, interactive mystery company that entertains groups all over the world. Peter is a Top Forty Under 40 award recipient.
