He also worked in Banking, Marketing, and Real Estate. Peter has served on over 15 non-profit boards and advisory groups.  He came out in 2009 as a gay man after a long straight marriage, and has two adult children, both of whom are gay.

He is now the inaugural member of the TCF Advisory Council.  Along the way, his passion for music led him to envision “Tyler’s Suite,” and he was central to commissioning this powerful song cycle. Peter is newly married to Jared Moreno Drake; they make their home in the San Francisco Bay Area, and travel extensively.

In 2015 he was selected by Being Alive as their Volunteer of the Year, and was awarded  at a ceremony organized by the leadership of the City of West Hollywood.  His work there included client seminars on healthy lifestyle, and overseeing Los Angeles City grant accounting and reporting.
