Hi there, it’s Peter Green and a personal homepage. It will summarize me in a few words. 50 important things (upd: more!) about me you should know if you want to. Things on the right are my projects and blog posts.
I grew up listening to the Beatles.
I consider words as important as deeds, if not more important.
I’m open to anything, limited only by other people’s freedom.
I have worked on a tv-series set, in a major advertising agency, and in graphic design.
I like Van Gogh and the post-impressionists the most.
I was born in Moscow in August of 1985.
I can be contacted by all means.
I speak English, Russian and French, I can blind-type in Russian and English but not French.
I design and manufacture clothing by the brand of Volga Verdi.
I am working on an internet startup called Mine together with 2 friends.
I try to do things that are valuable from 20 years' perspective.
I want to aquire a collection of cars, including Lancia Delta Integrale, Aston Martin Lagonda, De Tomaso Mangusta, Ferrari 412, Alfa Romeo 6c 2500 Freccia D'oro, Jag XJ12C, Monteverdi 375/4, Lambo Countach, Dodge Viper mk.1 and a few others. Oh and a testarossa for sure!!
I do design-related freelance things on the net to afford gas and food.
I’m trying to philosophize a theory that would seamlessly combine physics and logic. I don’t have a single person to talk to about my ideas and it sucks. So I wish I had some friends with PhD in quantum physics.
I liked to play Lego when I was a kid and I was sure I would do so all my life.
I think one needs to limit their exposure to beauty in order to be able to enjoy it.
I have no idea about life, but it helps to realize that nobody does. Although people who have gone through war, marriage and fatherhood do know a tiny bet better.
I spend too much time in front of the computer.
I fancy old motorcycles (30-50s) but I’ve never had one.
I make about 10 times less money that I’d like to.
I love coffee and fresh bread and can’t stand milk.
I wish people were more open and trusted each other more. I want to able to talk to a person on the street without hesitation and know they're my friend and ally.
I am irritated by few things: people being irritated by things, people blindly convinced about something. First is a sign of emotional/psychological issues, second – intelligence issues.
I think the beauty is about harmony plus character. Harmony gives structure and balance, character gives uniqueness and differentiates.
I ride biketrials for about 8 years and I still love it. I love bicycles in general.
I like absurd humor.
I have nothing to hide, I think people overly concerned with their privacy are shady.
I have too many ideas and too little time or energy. I wish I have met people with who we could accomplish all this.
I don’t believe in God, but I don’t say that because it’s misunderstood. Some people choose to call what they don’t understand “God”. I choose to call it “things we don’t understand”. Yet.
I live in San Francisco, California.
I am a visually-driven person. I can get high or super-aroused just looking at abstract images.
I have a blog on Tumblr where I post the strongest images I find. If you feel the same – let me know, we might be visual-twins.
I don’t have a good photo of me, but here’s a random one.
I hate doing things poorly, and I’m perfectionistic about quality. This particular detail does not allow me to accomplish things. I just lose interest because I can’t get it to be perfect.
I love astronomy. Thinking about the stars gives you a feeling of complete freedom from our Earthly-little-problems.
I play Texas hold’em since 8th year in school. Not that I’m that good at it.
My grandfather was a geographer and radio-gunner in the red army air force. My other grandfather was one of the best children’s illustrators in Russia. The best actually.
I don't think I'll ever work for a company. Unless it's small and run by a person who's vision is same as mine and I will have tremendous respect for him.
I think anything is possible. Anyone who questions this arrogantly claims to know the future, which has nothing to do with what we know, I.e. the past.
I believe that all the people can live in peace and it’s the ultimate goal of the world.
I think learning to talk and finding the ways to find the common values is the way to achieve the latter.
I want to do interior design, architecture, script, direct and edit movies, act, do digital and motion interactive design, do flash mobs, video-art, and industrial design.
I hate everything that’s popular but I have an iPhone because it works the best.
I like Amsterdam and New York.
I have never been in a fight in my life.
I like shiny things, reflections, light and high contrasts.
I think politics is fucked up and the world needs my help.
I think internet will, no, Is changing the future and it’s obvious.
I don’t have an opinion on things I have too little information about. And I don’t think one should.
In life, I'm only interested in winning in the things that I don't know how to win. Sports, games: never interesting. People and money: always interesting.
I hate darkness, sleeping (going to bed to be exact) and hunger.
