About Peter Altschul
For some unknown reason, Peter Altschul was born totally blind. He was the only blind student attending his local high school, where he played percussion in the marching band and other music groups, failed as a wrestler, and studied while pretending to goof off. In college, he played percussion in the marching band and other music groups and drank beer while studying music and psychology.
As a professional, Peter has been an advocate for change and a better world. He continues that work in his blogging, books and podcasts. He has published two books of short essays titled Riding Elephants: Creating Common Group Where Contention Rules (2021) and Breaking It Down and Connecting the Dots: Creating Common Ground Where Contention Rules (2017), as well as a memoir entitled Breaking Barriers, Working and Loving While Blind (2012).
