Peter Crimmins used to tinker with electronics as a child. He would take radios apart and figure out the schema of capacitors and transistors. He never figured out how to put them back together, so he became a radio producer rather than an electrical engineer. Peter became senior producer of Ben Manilla Productions, in San Francisco, and made programming for public radio, commerical radio, and corporate projects.
Since becoming an independent producer, he has reported from England, Spain, Tijuana, Philadelphia, and New York. In addition to Studio 360, his stories have aired on Weekend America and Marketplace. He is a part-time news reporter at WHYY, in Philadelphia. His long-awaited film project may never be completed, but it's great. You'll see.
