Yung Gravy’s father is widely known as a sleep researcher and psychologist. He tried to help people, who suffer from the wide-spread modern disorder – insomnia. In his works, Dr. Hauri formulated several principles, which helped people all over the world to sleep better. First of all, he advised getting out of bed, if you can’t sleep and start doing something interesting – till the sleep will bring you to bed again.

His researches brought him lots of prestigious titles, including Ph.D., which he earned at the University of Chicago. In spite of super successful career, Dr. Hauri put his family first all the time.

He was born in the family of Rudolf and Verena Hauri in Sirnach, Switzerland. The boy grew up alongside 5 siblings. He earned a degree at Teacher’s College and served at a junior school till he got an opportunity to continue his education in the USA.

In the USA he met Debbie Rea and fell in love with her. They got married, and Peter settled in his wife’s country permanently. He studied psychology at North Central College and later attended the University of Chicago.

He and Debbie Rea-Hauri were happy together during many years, but then both partied their ways. He met another woman – Cynthia Cleveland, his colleague – and both fell in love with each other. They got married, and at the age of 62, Peter welcomed his youngest kid – a son Matthew, which is known under the name of Yung Gravy now.
