In partnership with his wife, Jennifer, he helps to guide NoVo’s vision, strategic mission, and program development. Peter Buffett is a well-established musician, composer, and producer. Born in Omaha, Nebraska, he began his career in San Francisco writing music for commercials. After recording four albums for Narada Records, he signed with Epic and then Hollywood Records and completed four additional releases. His Emmy-winning album, “Ojibwe” was released on his own label, BisonHead. Highlights of his film and television work include the fire dance scene in the Oscar-winning film, Dances With Wolves and the entire score for 500 Nations, the 8-hour miniseries produced by Kevin Costner for CBS. Peter Buffett is the author of Life Is What You Make It, which debuted at No. 4 on the New York Times Best Seller Hardcover Advice list and is a companion to his live Concert & Conversation performances. Buffett’s theatrical production, Spirit—The Seventh Fire, was performed on the National Mall for the Smithsonian’s opening of the National Museum of the American Indian. The production combined Imax scale film and imagery, native dancers, and a live band to tell the story of one man’s journey toward reconnection through his heritage and the land. Peter and Jennifer Buffett were named in Barron’s list of top 25 most effective philanthropists in 2009 and 2010.
