Peter first realized he had to do something about climate change while reading ‘The Lorax’ by Dr Seuss to groups of children, on a mossy rock in the Sooke Hills, as part of an environmental program at a summer camp. Since 2008, he’s been a community organizer on campaigns for voting reform, to block oil tanker traffic expansion and to push the University of Victoria to divest from fossil fuels.
In 2017, he was a Teaching Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School, coaching and supporting organizers around the world running local campaigns. He's been a Co-Director at Organize BC since 2015, and is currently on the Board of Directors and fundraising team at the Victoria Sexual Assault Centre. At some point in there he became a trained chef.
He lives in Victoria and spends a lot of time kayaking.
