Why Peter joined the Portland Business Alliance board of directors:
I have had the honor of participating on the board of directors for Downtown Portland Clean & Safe for more than 10 years, and sat as a board representative to the Alliance for Clean & Safe twice. I appreciate the work that the Alliance is doing to improve our city and region.

I am most passionate about livability issues, and general city governance and accountability. Anything I can do to move the needle and help improve these issues would feel like an achievement.

Why it’s important:
I believe it’s important to engage directly with the problems we are facing as a community. Portland is experiencing tremendous growth, which creates great opportunities and new challenges. I want to help be part of the solutions that help our entire community.

I live for spending time outside with family and friends. When I have time, I enjoy running trails in Forest Park, cycling to the beach, golfing, skiing and hiking.

I lived in Costa Rica for one year after graduating from college, before I started working at Melvin Mark.
