Founder & CEO
Peter learned the love of Wuxia from his father Shiao Yi, a leading creator in the martial arts-fantasy genre, from his earliest memories.
As an adult, he would lead the Shaolin Temple's foray into international culture from events, exhibits, film, television and games, and learn from martial masters living in mountains and cities some of the legendary practices associated with Wuxia.
He has been a serial founder-entrepreneur in the entertainment industry, producing the first ever Hollywood-Chinese film co-production, founding the first ever East-West film investment fund, and founding/chairing the US-China Film Summit.
