Hometown: Wheaton, IL
Education: Prescott College, BA in Education and Leadership
Peter grew up in Wheaton, Illinois where he enjoyed playing hockey, football, and reading the poetry of Shel Silverstein. In college, Peter spent a semester in the north of India, which made a lasting impact on him. While earning a B.A. in Education from Prescott College in Arizona, he spent some of his favorite summers working at a backpacking summer camp in Durango, Colorado. Since graduating, Peter hiked the Colorado Trail with a few friends, backpacked through his grandparents home country of Italy, bicycled across the Western US, taught creative writing to students in Chicago, worked as a wilderness therapy guide, and has led teens and young adults on both summer and semester long programs. He has spent the majority of the past few years leading groups in East Africa and India. Peter is very excited to be returning to RLT for a third summer after the past two have been full of learning and lasting friendships.
