PETE PUNITO – Creative Development Partner
Pete made his way from Chicago to L.A. many pilot-season-moons ago, arriving at his present position here at CoffeeRing by way of an enlightening route called Highway Circuitous. From budget analyst to options-trader to corporate controller to theater owner to vaudevillian-crooner to writer to actor to producer. This would be the left-to-right-to-center-brain avenue called oblique. Sure he could have gone straight from Finance major to movie Producer, but where’s the pain-filled fun in that? Pete currently works as partner and Festival Coordinator at the DaVinci Film Festival.
