Peter was a stage carpenter and a rigger before returning to school to earn a degree in mechanical engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.  In 1998 he joined the team at JR Clancy and managed their projects at a number of theaters and performing arts centers. Over the last two decades he has been JR Clancy’s chief engineer on a variety of new product designs as well as on many repairs and custom applications. Pete designs, builds, inspects and services equipment in places of entertainment wherever they may be. In his travels he has earned the license of a Professional Engineer, IATSE membership, a number of patents, a few scars, and some great friends.  He is proud to be among the contributors to ESTA working to develop national standards for the entertainment industry.  When he is not working on stage machinery you will find him with his family at home in the Finger Lakes or prowling in the woods and fields of Upstate New York.
