Peter Riva

Peter was a pure math major at college but later went to UCLA Film School and then to the BBC as an Apprentice. He was the creator and producer of over 78 hours of primetime wildlife television, spent a ton of time in  East Africa and parts of North and Central Africa, co-founded a film history museum, and was the program manager for the first global circum-navigation atmospheric flight (Voyager; 1986). 

His daytime job for more than forty years has been as a literary agent. Born and raised in New York City, London, and Switzerland, he moved some years ago and loves where he lives now best of all: Gila, New Mexico. 

Peter worked for more than thirty years with the leaders in aerospace and space exploration as well as environmental causes with the UN, USA  and USSR. He also helped manage and create several international historic events (the memorabilia of which are on permanent display in national  institutions in America, Germany, and France as well as touring  internationally).
