As a firm believer in the importance of family and community Peter has spent all of his working life working with both employees and employers in the retail industry to find a balance that benefits all South Australians.

After completing a Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Adelaide and prior to entering the Legislative Council, Peter was the State Secretary of the SDA. In this role he was the driver behind the historic changes to shop trading hours in the CBD and the creation of two part-day day public holidays on Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

Peter recently became the Minister for Police,Minister for Correctional Services, Minister for Emergency Services and Minister for Road Safety.

In Peter’s spare time, he can often be found at a Port Power game or out on the footy field with his beloved Adelaide Uni (The Blacks).

Peter’s great love is his family. Peter and his wife Annabel have one daughter Sophie.
