Pete grew up in Upper Michigan (the U.P.) before moving to Alaska in 1992. He worked for the US Forest Service as a wildlife biologist and District Ranger until his 2010 retirement. Described as the “Storytelling Ranger” (as well as the <voice of the Tongass<), he>s been telling personal stories about life that incorporate natural history, leadership, and learning for years on radio. He>s performed in Los Angeles, Richmond VA, Jonesborough TN, on board Disney and Princess cruise ships as Alaskan Naturalist on dozens of Alaskan cruises, and at libraries, schools, and museums between Alaska, Hawaii, and Michigan. He still live in Juneau surrounded by bears, whales, and glaciers. His latest project (<Diary of a Forest Ranger<) is a solo performance based on his 37 years with the US Forest Service that was broadcast state-wide in Alaska in 2016. Check the link to the video, his hilarious story of a celebrity that moved to Juneau... not Sarah Palin, but a black wolf! His three CDs are available on his website, www.thestorytellingranger.com.
I make several trips to the Lower 48 each year and incorporate storytelling opportunities with each trip. Let>s talk!
