Continuing our series of “Getting to Know” with our team, where team members answer five questions. Check out previous posts on James and Su!

This week, we have Peter.

1. What are you passionate about?

I’m passionate about people living their fullest. You’ll see me constantly poking people I care about to do better, to work harder, to earn the life they ‘say they want.’ I naturally gravitate to people whom I see have a work ethic that will help propel them to even greater success. I’m not a savior, but I’ll certainly take an interest in you if I see that you’re willing to work harder than your peers to get what you want.

2. What’s your favorite movie?

The Game. Michael Douglas. This movie reveals the emptiness of a purpose-less life and what may be required to ‘wake up.’ I require ‘waking up’ now and again to re-set my priorities and get my mind to focus and grind. We don’t need to be shocked to be alive, but we should be mindful of how we waste our life.

3. Tell us a bit about your personality.

I am an introvert.

Most people understand introversion/extroversion as an outward appearance. This simply isn’t true. What defines introversion and extroversion is how they are motivated.

Extroverts are motivated (generally) by outward tangible results. Introverts are motivated by internal results. I am internally motivated. I am challenge-oriented. I want to grow my experience and prove to (myself) that I can do anything I put my mind to. Subsequently, a lot of tangible purchases are required to do what I want. This makes for an easy assumption that I’m extroverted. Sit down and dream with me. Talk with me about what you’ll do in life. Then you’ll have my full attention.

4. What are some of your life goals?

My current life-goals – To make YEN.io the best crypto-application ever, having fun building a great company, and being rewarded for our efforts. To become an amateur racecar driver and win an amateur race.

5. Do you have a secret talent?

My wife taught me how to beatbox. I can only beatbox one song by Dr. Dre.


Tune in next week for more “Getting to Know”.
