Peter grew up in the flatlands of the suburbs of Chicago. Upon laying eyes on the Colorado Rockies in 2007, he knew that this was the place to be. After finishing his degree in Recreation and Tourism at Colorado State, he relocated to Crested Butte and hasn't looked back. He discovered his passion for climbing during his years at Colorado State and is now determined to share it with as many people as possible through guiding and instructing. Peter has begun his professional guiding track with the American Mountain Guide Association and looks forward to applying that knowledge with his clients. He is proud to work beside some of the best, most professional guides in the business. Aside from guiding Peter helped co-found the local climbers coalition representing the Gunnison Valley, working with representatives from the local public land agencies to ensure protection and sustainability of the local climbing areas. When not climbing at the local crags around Crested Butte, he can be found exploring his favorite climbing areas around the Western desert.
