As a native of North Hollywood, California, Pete has spent his entire career in the non-profit sector. This began during his undergraduate years at the University of Arizona, when he was hired by Fraternity Management Group to help manage capital campaigns at different campuses across the country. Though he graduated from the Race Track Industry Program (studying horse and dog racing), he opted to follow his newly found passion.
Serving the non-profit sector for 22-plus years, Pete has impacted hundreds of charitable organizations by providing board development, public awareness, and fundraising solutions. He's managed funding campaigns which have generated more than $30,000,000 in donations.
He is Founder and Managing Director of NPcatalyst LLC, which provides philanthropic connections and solutions to businesses and charities throughout the country. Through his company, he is executive director of Pathways to Aviation. He also co-created GiftingWishes.com, an innovative online giving system designed for charities seeking to fulfill wish lists. Pete received the University of Nevada’s Alumnus Advisor of the Year Award at the 2014 and 2015 Greek Ball awards. He's also a recipient of the Reno-Tahoe Young Professional Network's Twenty Under 40 Award, inaugural Most Influential Community Leader of Reno/Tahoe Award, and Kappa Sigma's Gamma-Rho Chapter Hall of Fame award. What he treasures most is spending time with his wife and children, running and cycling in the Sierra Nevadas, cheering on his Arizona Wildcats, watching horse racing, and actively volunteering.

His ability to connect leaders and create solutions will be instrumental in developing programs, linking leaders, and recruiting members.
