Meet The Team
From nearly failing high school to graduating from university, one can say that Peter started from the bottom now he’s here. He holds a master’s and bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from the University of Toronto and the University of Calgary, respectively. He began his career with a hilarious portfolio approach and was involved in random projects that expanded and continues to expand his view of the world. He’s passionate about creating and exploring new boundaries and currently leads the technical development of Green Mesa but is also involved with various business development activities. Outside of work Peter spend time slowly chipping at the goal of becoming a concert pianist, and on the weekend, you can usually find him doing laps at the pool.
