As a native Portlander, Peter grew up in the Overlook Neighborhood and enjoyed watching Portland grow into the best bicycling city in the U.S. As a high school kid at Benson Polytechnic in Northeast Portland, Peter didn’t ride his bike to school because there weren’t facilities on that three-mile trip. As he contemplates that trip today, he wouldn’t hesitate to take it as an adult. Peter’s experience as a consulting transportation engineer has taken him to many cities throughout the country, so he knows how good we have it here. And while Portland has achieved a lot, as an employee at the Portland Bureau of Transportation, he knows we can do better. His extensive travels in the Netherlands has shown him what our community could look like and what we need to do to meet the goals of The Street Trust. Portland is only as good as the region and outside of the City; we need to be a lot better.

Passionate about economic development and how bicycling fits into the big picture, he is an active participant in the bicycling community and, judging by his pedal-happy staff and bike-friendly clients, his company’s values reflect his passions.

Ben is a huge supporter of The Street Trust’s work, but he also sees a lot of opportunities to improve bicycling infrastructure and education even more, especially in SE Inner Portland—his neck of the woods. He brings years of marketing and development experience to the board!
