Peter Wilamoski


On Sunday mornings, you can usually find me on a long, slow run followed by an enormous breakfast that includes chorizo or biscuits and gravy.

I’d like to be remembered as someone who can be counted on, a good listener, empathetic, approachable, fair, disciplined, thoughtful and adventurous.

I want to learn to play the saxophone.

The favorite thing about my career is getting paid to learn how the world works!

The job that has taught me the most about people was either working my way through college as a waiter or my job as a garbage man.

My proudest accomplishment would definitely be getting my daughter through high school and into college as a reasonably well adjusted, inquisitive, independent thinking young adult, and completing my Ph.D. Both were really hard.

If I could do anything for a day, I’d star in a Broadway musical, do stand-up at a comedy club or perform open heart surgery.
