Peter started his career at the Museum of Southwest Biology where he was exposed to the environmental and economic impacts associated with hydrologic diversions as he studied the Rio Grande River and other Southwest river systems. Subsequently he spent four years developing experiments and published findings regarding the onset of tumor cell metastasis at the National Cancer Institute. These early career exposures established his interest in preventing environmental insults as a path towards a healthy future and led to his MS in environmental engineering-pollution control. As the Kappe Lab Scholar at the Pennsylvania State University, he studied the engineering of water treatment technologies and parlayed this into consulting for HARZA Engineering (now MWH). As a team leader he led and participated in the engineering of environmental solutions to major infrastructure investments such as hydropower reservoirs in South America, major floodplain restorations along the Danube River and the restoration of wetlands in Illinois. He then accepted a role as the Director of Sustainability for the Chicago Department of Water Management where he integrated solutions to complex issues such as stormwater policy, water conservation and sewer operations. Currently, Pete is an Advisor at Greenleaf Advisors, LLC, where he is developing the strategy for an “Intelligent Infrastructure” discipline which meets his passion of connecting business, policy and science for a healthy and sustainable world.
