About Kristopher Peck
Born in 1984. Lifelong Seward resident. In the mid 90′s I got my first job as a videographer. My dad George Peck paid me $5 an hour to film him riding his unicycle over all manner of terrain.
My teenage years were spent making skateboard videos with my friends. Following my in my father’s track I also learned how to ride the seatless unicycle called the Ultimate Wheel. A major breakthrough came in 2010 when my short film “Tour de Seward” was selected for the Anchorage International Film Festival.
