An Ames local and Iowa State grad, Peter holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology and a master’s in architecture. Peter’s passion for architecture lies in the opportunities to collaborate on projects that require a combination of creativity, social and cultural awareness, and technical problem solving. He enjoys architecture because it is a field where no two days will be entirely the same, with no shortage of new and interesting things to learn or experience.
