Peter started his working life spending fifteen years as a research scientist specializing in computer graphics and computer-human interaction.
This was followed by five years working for the Canadian government in international trade promotion focusing on the software and telecom industries. Moving to the private sector, Peter then joined a small software company that was later acquired by IBM, where he was responsible for contract negotiations and intellectual property issues.
Throughout his career, Peter traveled widely, living abroad for two years, and spending considerable time in developing countries. Since retirement, Peter has visited Latin America annually for Spanish training, and has been trained by CAWST in Biosand Filters.
