A native of New Jersey and now a resident of Denver, Colorado, Peter has been an advocate for the less fortunate since he was a teenager, first serving as a student teacher, camp counselor and mentor for underprivileged youngsters in Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

His efforts to help children and an appreciation for the charitable work of non-profit organizations intensified while attending the University of Colorado and graduate school at Rice University. It continues stronger than ever today.

“Where there’s altruism there’s light. Where a willingness to help others is lacking, there’s darkness. It’s up to each of us to see that our path is shining bright.”

As a key member of the Play for James Foundation leadership team, Peter’s looking forward to working to improve the health, well-being and quality of life of needy kids and families in our communities, one program, one challenge, and one success at a time.
