Perko has written for and edited numerous publications, and he has worked as a columnist, speechwriter, composer, musician, lecturer, and playwright. He is a member of the Authors Guild, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, Broadcast Music, Inc., the Organization of American Historians, the British Library, and the Institution of Engineering and Technology.
