Pete’s connection to the land formed at an early age, exploring the woods in a nature preserve abutting his childhood home in Connecticut and spending summers on his grandparent’s sheep farm in North Hebron, New York.
Most recently working as a City Planner in Keene, New Hampshire, Pete gained extensive experience supporting the efforts s of community groups: facilitating planning efforts, critically analyzing proposed development projects, and drafting a variety of natural resource protection ordinances. Pete also served as an Associate Core Faculty member in the Resource Management and Conservation Program at Antioch University New England Graduate School, where he taught course work in land use planning, land protection and stewardship, and community and organizational sustainability.
Prior to his planning and teaching work, Pete spent 18 years in the business world as a management consultant, specializing in strategic planning and organizational development. He has an MBA from New York University and a Masters in Environmental Conservation from Antioch. When not pursuing his passion for protecting the integrity of the landscape, Pete can be found puttering around the family’s farm, working in his garden at his home in Keene, or exploring the region's natural areas with his wife Michele and daughter Emily.
