He was born on January 21, 1984 to Michael and Margaret Votypka in Olathe, KS. He was a collector of associates degrees from Johnson County Community College with a whopping total of three. Peter worked for the past 12 years at Capital Federal Savings, and most recently as an assistant bank manager.

He was the founding member of the Basehor Golf and Cigar Club, inventor of the selfie, destroyer of the Emperor, and creator of official identification cards. He enjoyed boating with his family, driving his Subarus fast, and men’s fashion in quadruplicate.
