Peter is a prolific writer with over 170 published national continuing education courses to his credit in publications such as Architectural Record. He also has numerous other articles in professional journals, magazines, and books related to advancing building performance through better design. As an independent writer, he is available to support many different types of for-profit and not-for-profit organizations with professionally written material.
Since 1980, Peter's multi-faceted work has focused on principles of energy, environment, and sustainability, well before the term “green” architecture was popularized.

He has also been involved in creating standards and implementing efforts for sustainable neighborhoods and local communities (Cities, towns, counties, and villages).
As a sought after speaker and author, Peter has presented at numerous state, local, regional, and national seminars and conferences, primarily on the topic of sustainable design, green building practices, and green building rating systems such as the US Green Building Council’s LEED® program. He has also assisted others in the creation of continuing education presentations and programs around the US and internationally.
