Born and raised in Hagerstown, Pieter (pronounced Peter) was elected Student Representative of the Year at North High, in a way foreshadowing his current position with the Washington County Board of Education. His involvement in the community is deep, having worked with a number of nonprofits throughout the years, as well as serving as a news anchor for WHAG-TV and editor-in-chief for What's NXT. Specializing in High Rock's Cinema Solutions comes naturally since Pieter previously covered the movie industry for WBAL Radio in Baltimore. His perfect day of relaxation would be sleeping in, going to brunch, and seeing a movie (at Leitersburg Cinemas, of course!) Pieter and his wife Stephanie are empty nesters, while their daughter is exploring college life outside of Boston.
