About Me

Pete Muller has enjoyed solving crosswords since he was a teenager. He started creating them in 2005 and published his first NY Times puzzle in 2006. While Pete is known for his innovative and tricky puzzles, he places primary importance on creating a fun experience for the solver. For difficult puzzles, of course, this might involve an appropriate amount of torture! Pete has published puzzles in the NY Times, Fireball Crosswords, the Wall Street Journal, the LA Times, and others. The Washington Post started publishing the MMMM in 2019. In addition to creating crosswords, Pete is a musician and runs a quantitative investment firm. He is happily married with two children.
