Sullivan, Peter Michael was born in Encino, California on August 5th, 1964 to Mary Elizabeth Sullivan and James Frederick Sullivan. At age 5, he moved to Minneapolis with his mother and siblings. His creative gifts led him to study and work as a youth at the renowned Minneapolis Children's Theater Company and School, where he became a lead sound technician in his teens. At age 17, he was hired as a sound designer for the director's cut of the Academy Award winning film The Boat (Das Boot) and would go on to be a highly sought after sound designer, editor, and mixer in theater, film, and television for the next few decades, with credits including such acclaimed films as Braveheart, The Abyss, and the Kill Bill series, among many others. Peter combined his professional craft and love of adventurous global travel to create a massive sound library that contributed to sound effects in numerous films and television shows beyond the projects he personally worked on. He was also passionate about photography. His signature black and white works were exhibited in Asia, where he lived for several years. To his friends, Peter had a great sense of humor, a generous heart, strong opinions, an appetite for a good argument, and unusual compassion for the vulnerable. He was also a complex spiritual seeker, exploring Buddhism and later rediscovering Christianity. He devoted the last years of his life to his faith. Late on the night of June 20, 2022, Peter lost his battle with cancer and passed peacefully in hospice in Bethany, Oklahoma. He is survived by his siblings John, Andrew and Jennifer, and half siblings Adrienne and Jim. Funeral services will be held graveside in Oklahoma next week.
