Peter Marek's Profile
Welcome to my Columbia Missourian profile. Before I came to the University of Missouri to study Photojournalism, I was raised in Geneva, Illinois. I received the name Peter after I was born on Easter morning and my grandma thought it would be fitting to name me after Peter Cottontail. I am the middle child sandwiched between four brothers. I went to high school at Marmion Academy in Aurora, Illinois where I played golf all four years and baseball for two. However my favorite sport now is hockey, which I played through elementary school. As well as sports, I also love music (most importantly Umphrey's McGee). Last semester I worked for the Missourian as a staff photographer and this summer I am writing as a reporter.
