Hello, I’m Peter Hyer

Portfolio Director, IDEO San Francisco

I guide content and lead relationships that push the edges of media and technology.

What you won’t learn from my bio:
I’ve previously studied social psychology, computer science, animation, fine art, architecture, mathematics, theater, and much more. I’m delighted that I don’t have to choose between all my interests, but can actually take advantage of each of them.

Joined IDEO:
2010
