Pete has worked in all aspects of the construction industry, from Architecture to Litigation, Neighborhood Planning to Installing Windows. Joining Bright Green Strategies in May 2010, he is inspired by the potential of Green Building to change how our industry does business. He is most interested in leaving behind the industry’s “less bad” mentality, driving residential construction to Zero impacts across the board, and exceeding that, imagining buildings that not only don’t harm our world, but actually make it better. Pete sees Green Building as constantly “in beta”, and continues to learn about the next thing on an ongoing basis. His goal is to help clients achieve their sustainability goals within budget, and then push them to go further on their next project.
Pete is an accomplished GreenPoint Rater, LEED for Homes Green Rater, and HERS Rater. He is passionate about modern architecture, politics, rec league softball, and is a committed fan of the Giants and 49ers. Pete volunteers his time as a City of Santa Cruz Planning Commissioner, member of the USGBC Monterey Bay Branch, and elected member of Santa Cruz’ Democratic Central Committee.
