Peter grew up loving the ocean, despite growing up in Ohio with no ocean in sight. Every opportunity he got, he sought the refuge of the ocean to play and explore. He took this passion with him to college to focus on oceanography, rocks and biology. After graduating and living overseas for a few years, he studied environmental law and policy. Since then, Peter has worked both internationally and nationally on environmental human rights, transportation and land use, philanthropy and education related issues. He currently serves as executive director for GLOW, a nonprofit focused on empowering under-resourced students to help them access, attend and graduate from college.
When time and ocean permit, Peter is enjoying the surf in northern California with intermittent trips to warmer water destinations. When not surfing, Peter is focused on building social startups and multi-sector partnerships, philanthropic strategy, thinking about eating and cooking, and planning his next surf vacation.
