Favorite thing about spreadsheets: Infinite flexibility.

Peter has spent his career focused building innovations that better people’s lives. His first job was an internship in college with Microsoft Money as a program manager. After college he was an investment banking grunt in JP Morgan’s technology mergers and acquisitions group where he built endless spreadsheets. Two decades later, after many exciting roles in various technology companies, he created Tiller to merge these early formative experiences around finance and spreadsheets. Beyond Tiller, there’s nothing he enjoys more than spending time outside with his wife and two young boys.
