He has worked with Interpol in Lyon France and the United Nations Office of Drug and Crime.

Peter’s life changed as a result of a Tsunami on Boxing Day in Thailand 2004.  Peter was part of the investigative team tasked with the daunting process of identifying the remains of the many unfortunate victims.

Peter witnessed the devastation and the masses of children left without a home and  parents. He decided at that moment, that he needed to do something and he started The Charity, Hands Across The Water.
