He went on to Bard College where he earned a BA in music performance with Leo Wadada Smith and and Joan Tower. After Bard, Pete split time between Woodstock and NYC playing with seminal indie rock bands Arms, The Visitors, and Niner as well as filling in for his friends in their groups. Touring highlights include Arms, Bari Koral, and The Visitors. Notable studio  recordings include Jason Downs, Kari Spieler, Arms, Sean Lathrop, and Ben Vita. See discography page.
