Peter was born in Holland and as a child immigrated with his family to South Africa where he lived for forty years. He has a degree in mechanical engineering and worked in that field while having a lifelong interest in the flora and fauna of Africa as well as the sea life of the region. He is now an American citizen and resides in Illinois where he focuses on the wild life and birds of the region while continuing his interest in the animals of the African continent..
