Peter grew up in Windsor, NS, where he attended public schools and later King’s College School now King’s-Edgehill as a day student.

His first job was in the Yukon at a residential school as a caretaker. He returned home and began work on the gypsum boats out of Hantsport and travelled to many parts of Canada and the USA, also Mexico, Jamaica and Trinidad. 

He attended trade school in Halifax and studied to be an electrician. After a few years he then went back to school to become a stationery engineer, working first in Pubnico at the fish plant before moving to Amherst to work at Sifto Salt in Nappan, NS, until his retirement in 2005.
