Peter has worked in media and communications for over 15 years. Before coming to Earth Innovation Institute, he directed a year-long reporting project in partnership with UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability focused on watershed restoration in immigrant and minority communities across California. From 2010 to 2018, he was senior editor at the San Francisco-based non-profit New America Media, where he helped coordinate day-to-day news operations and managed strategic programs for a national network of ethnic and community media partners. His work covered a wide variety of issues, from education and immigration, to healthcare and the environment. From 2007 to 2009, Peter worked as an editor for the South Korean news agency Yonhap in Seoul, South Korea. A native of San Francisco, Peter graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in Asian Studies. An avid cyclist and foodie, he is also an unrepentant news junkie. Peter is conversant in Korean, Chinese and (one day soon, fingers crossed) Spanish.
