For over 30 years, Peter has worked on communications strategies advancing issues of peace, security, human rights, democracy and social justice. He brings that breadth of experience to bear in helping drive every campaign that ReThink is involved in. He has led three organizations - two of which he co-founded - through periods of major growth. He has run electoral and legislative campaigns, managed coalitions, and built political power for the issues and organizations he’s worked with. He has designed and delivered hundreds of media and organizational development workshops and consulted with a broad range of major foundations. Currently, Peter works with each team at ReThink to develop long-term and short-term strategies and to balance their work between immediate impact and long-term change.
Working with the media, Peter has designed national advertising campaigns, designed comprehensive communications strategies, and led analytical projects assessing media and public opinion trends. As a practitioner, he has been a guest on hundreds of radio programs, as well as on national TV, including FOX, ABC, CNN and PBS. He has authored commentaries that have appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the International Herald Tribune, the Atlanta Journal Constitution, and most other major US dailies.
Peter graduated from Georgetown University and completed advanced studies in Global Media and Communications at the University of Melbourne, Australia. He lives in California, but identifies as a native New Yorker. When he wasn’t obsessively working on politics, he worked as an oil field roughneck, raised two kids, and circumnavigated the world twice. He continues to pursue an insatiable desire for live music and large waves.
