About the Author

Peter Meyer was born in South Africa and grew up on an incredible Safari Reserve running wild with Zulus and wild Animals set up by his father. Before the age of 8 Peter had survived snake bite(s), Rhino attacks, buffalo charges and much more. The adventures he lived were like no other, from learning to swim in rivers, to riding elephants, to walking among the wild and facing dangerous encounters. His pets were a baby Elephant, Warthogs, a loving Ostrich and other free spirits.

At the age of 6 Peter was sent to boarding school. At the age of 10 he moved to boarding school in the UK and there would excel at sports being a 1st Team player of all sports and a record breaking swimmer. He would fly back to South Africa for holidays until he was 16 when it was his last visit for another 16 yrs.

Having being born into the African wilderness the Reserve had a luxury Hotel, so naturally Peter was accustomed to the trade and ended up studying for 3 years at Les Roches University in Switzerland, arguably one of the best hotel schools in the world. There he excelled and graduated to enter the world of Hotels.

Peter lived and worked all around the world in countries like the UK, USA, Jamaica, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Dubai and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. 5 years was spent with Hilton hotels where he became one of the youngest directors at the age of 26. Peter was a senior Director at corporate level looking after multiple hotels worldwide for other companies such as Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, JA Hotels and YTL Hotels.

In 2014 at the age of 30 Peter sadly lost his father to cancer, where he was there by his side. His father was his hero and best friend. Struggling to focus on the Hotel world he found himself presented with an opportunity in Acting and Modelling. Taking the opportunity by the horns Peter has worked his way up in 2 years to acting in feature films including Hollywood productions along side A-Lists Actors such as Brad Pitt & Marion Cotillard in Allied, Liam Neeson in The Commuter and The Transformers The Last Knight all as an extra. He had his first lead-role playing Lee Reynolds in Guide to Get Lucky in 2015. He has had supporting roles in other British Independent films too. Some of his Modeling has been with brands such as Hugo Boss, Ralph Lauren, GANT & Tommy Hilfiger through El Corte Ingles in Spain and Jacamo & Ben Sherman in the UK.
