My name is Peter Shokeir. I am currently a reporter for The Whitecourt Star and The Mayerthorpe Freelancer.  I hope to become a film critic and publish some of my fictional writing, particularly a book series I’m working on.

I was born in Vancouver, B.C., lived briefly in Richmond, and then relocated to the States till I finished seventh grade. Up until I completed high school, I lived in Innisfail, AB. I then spent four years at the University of Lethbridge where I earned a BA in Psychology with distinction and minored in Philosophy.

Afterwards, I attended the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) where I earned my journalism diploma with a 4.0/4.0 GPA.

My favourite movies are 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, The Dark Knight, and The Third Man. As for TV shows, my top ones are Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The SimpsonsThe Sopranos, and the first four seasons of Dexter (ignore the other ones).
