Christopher is a Los Angeles-based Graphic Facilitator with over 30 years of professional experience. In 1992, after receiving a degree in Visual Art from Rutgers College, Christopher volunteered to help "scribe" a community-wide "DesignShop" in Orlando, Florida, facilitated by MG Taylor Corporation, an innovative and influential consulting company.‍

That initial meeting led to him becoming a core MG Taylor staff member. Christopher's work with MG Taylor helped spread the worldwide adoption of graphic recording as a standard meeting practice when MG Taylor partnered with the global consulting firm Ernst & Young LLP in 1995 and, later, Capgemini Consulting to develop their Accelerated Solutions Environment process.

After leaving MG Taylor, he founded his company, Griot's Eye Inc. (griotseye.com), in 1998 with a mission to use the power of graphics and rapid visualization to assist organizations in telling their stories.‍

Christopher has since provided graphic facilitation services at strategy meetings across five continents, twenty-plus countries, and forty-six states for companies such as Google, The Mayo Clinic, Kaiser Permanente, Stanford Health, Disney, Audi Motors (Berlin, Germany), UniCredit Bank (Turin, Italy), and NPR. He previously taught graphic facilitation and strategic modeling skills for UniCredit's UniManagement program in Turin, Italy, online with the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business's MBA program and to students as young as first grade in Orlando, Florida.

He is also the founder of The Black Music Project, a 2023 Webby Award Honoree for Education Websites and Mobile Sites that celebrates, promotes, and preserves the idea that the history of Black American music is the story of America by using multimedia storytelling and graphic facilitation techniques he learned throughout his career.

For Unicredit's young bank manager's program, Christopher Fuller teaches visual modeling skills in Turin, Italy.

Currently based in Houston, Peter began his graphic recording career in 1995 supporting design-thinking sessions for the Ernst & Young Accelerated Solutions Environment and MG Taylor Corporation.

Three years later, he founded Alphachimp (alphachimp.com) as a graphic facilitation company, and in 2012 began producing explainer videos and delivering onsite and online training in visual communication and design thinking skills.

He has been considered and innovator in the field by combining traditional illustration, painting, and printmaking techniques with digital media for large-scale conferences such as The World Economic Forum, HiMSS, PopTech, TEDxNashville, TEDMED, Ciudad de las Ideas, and the EG Conference.

Peter has delivered graphic recording training workshops for teams at large and small organizations, including Facebook, the NIKE Foundation, Deloitte, Accenture, T. Rowe Price, Capgemini, community groups, and nonprofits.

As a lead facilitator for the Office of Strategy & Innovation at Vanderbilt Medical Center, an MG Taylor-designed collaborative innovation space at a major research hospital in Nashville, Durand facilitates large-scale design-thinking sessions in the fields of biomedical informatics, electronic health records, and patient experience.

In 2017, Peter received an appointment as an adjunct professor at Northwestern University Law School in Chicago where he teaches a course on visual communication for the Masters of Science in Law program. Thanks to an adventurous and encouraging family, Peter was born in Kenya, grew up in the green hills of East Tennessee, and studied art and design in the St. Louis, Paris, and Krakow, Poland.
