Peter Picciano is a man with a lot of dreams and a few plans to match. He is working hard to get noticed in the modeling and acting worlds. During the day he is running around to photography shoots, countless casting calls and always trying to make sure he finds time for the gym. At night you can find him at Splash, where he works a variety of different jobs so that he can maintain his busy life in NYC. Peter is one of those guys who doesn’t plan on resting until all his goals are accomplished — and he is determined to make it all work.
This summer has really shown his dedication to finding his perfect place in this world. He started the summer in NYC, moved to Las Vegas to take a few classes he needed for his degree, and returns to NYC this week. But he can not unpack when he arrives. Later this month he heads to Montreal for the Queer of the Year competition. Tourisme Montréal, in partnership with Montreal Pride, seeks a person each year to represent their city to the gay community. Peter is determined to win this honor so he can return to NYC with a new title, new friends in Montreal and a little affirmation to get back to his daily grind. Peter looks forward to the day when he
has achieved all his dreams — maybe then he can rest!
