Peter has been a member of Slow Food Atlanta since 2007. Peter is passionate about Italy, Slow Food, the good food movement in Atlanta and family. Slow Food’s mission of good, clean and fair food, the pleasure of the table, the preservation of endangered food cultures and food justice all drew Peter to the movement. Peter has traveled extensively seeking the best in food & wine culture, and has spent a great deal of time in Italy over the last 20 years. Peter has a background in Sales Management and Marketing and has been an active community volunteer. Peter joined the board of Slow Food Atlanta in 2013 after a year living in Bra, Italy to attend the Master’s program in Food Culture and Communication at the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo, Italy. Upon returning to the States, Peter and Colleen moved to Decatur, GA to continue life in a small, walkable community. Since joining the Slow Food Atlanta Board, Peter has worked on food justice, Terra Madre, created the Slow Food for Thought Series and is working to develop an activist board.
