Peter brings a strong marketing background and a lifelong passion for world travel to his role as AdventureSmith’s Marketing Manager. His myriad adventures include SCUBA diving alongside pristine reefs throughout the Caribbean and Mexico, exploring the breathtaking rainforests of Costa Rica, surfing the exhilarating waves of the North Shore of Hawai’i and snorkeling in the magnificent Great Barrier Reef. In his early twenties, he joined a symphony and played his violin in an Austrian music festival, then traveled through seven more countries in Europe.

Peter cut his teeth working in ski industry marketing and led the online team at a local media-buying agency after that, equipping him with a 360-degree perspective on the many different facets of marketing and best practices in tackling tasks great and small. He earned an MBA from San Diego State University in 2009, and although the sunny skies, beautiful beaches and warm(ish) waves of Southern California were enticing, the snowy mountains, desolate trail systems and cold alpine lakes of the Tahoe area won his heart.

Peter believes that maximum professional success can only be achieved with a healthy work-life balance. When he’s not at AdventureSmith’s Truckee office, you can find him skiing powder in the backcountry, mountain biking with friends on the ever-growing trail system around his home and enjoying relaxing days at the lake with his wife, daughter and two dogs.
