He earned a master's degree in engineering, specializing in agricultural machinery, and became an award-winning singer, touring various music festivals throughout Poland.

When colleagues suggested he might be more successful abroad, Peter traveled to England, where he did his first commercial for Bristol 7 West, playing a Polish spy. When he migrated to the United States in 1989, he immediately attracted the attention of film and television producers. Since his real name was hard to pronounce, he chose Peter J. Lucas as his stage name. Peter's acting career includes performances in numerous American and Polish TV series such as Officers (Oficerowie); Wanted; ER; Crossing Jordan; Alias and Chicago Hope.
