In line with his love for learning, traveling and creative writing, Peter Tolly will spend the remainder of the year participating in an international creative writing program at the Aegean Center for the Fine Arts.

While we will miss Peter’s creativity, management and writing skills, we are so excited to see him embark on what’s bound to be an enriching and inspiring experience in Pisotia, Italy and Paros, Greece.
