  • Pete started his career with the US Forest Service in 1973 as a wildlife biologist. When he was promoted to District Ranger on the Tongass National Forest in Juneau, Alaska, in 1999, he began recording short natural history vignettes for radio. Titled, Tongass Trails, the essays documented his exploration of the temperate rainforest and eventually incorporated Pete's experiences growing up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (yes, he's a Yooper). The series ran five years, drawing public praise in the Capital City. Pete later narrated Shades of Green, a Forest Service production of video stories about life and land of the Tongass as told by the people who live and work there. See a segment of that series on his website! Following his retirement from the Forest Service, he told natural history stories aboard the Disney Wonder, a 2600-passenger cruise ship, along the Inside Passage of Southeast Alaska in its inaugural season. On board he performed stage shows for hundreds of passengers at a time, featuring unique aspects of some common and not-so-common species of plants and wildlife of Southeast Alaska, in addition to talking to passengers about glaciers, bears, whales, and the forests they were seeing. He continues to tell Alaska stories on board Disney and Princess Cruise Lines every summer on their Alaska cruises.
