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
