Why my hotel rooms always smell wonderful, how to use firewood ash as toothpaste, or what it’s like riding a donkey…to school.


Growing up in rural Jamaica, Peter found himself clambering onto the house roof to adjust the antenna every time his parents wanted to watch a different TV channel. From an early age, he understood that a change of view requires guts and finesse. Did those foreign scenes flickering on the analog box also ignite his wanderlust? In any case, he knew that the familiar destinations of North America and the UK weren’t going to satisfy it, and since the family had a used Japanese car business, he got the idea of making a bold leap to Tokyo. Having worked for three years in PR, Peter lateraled easily into recruitment, but soon realized he had merely exchanged one status quo for another: 9-5 in another country was still 9-5. The Agency was the answer, as he now enjoys creating his own schedule and banks most of the revenue he generates. “Here the teamwork is meaningful,” he says, “and I have the autonomy to make decisions that work for me. I have a life.” Which includes his passions of fitness, Zen philosophy, and ever more travel. It’s a long way from Kingston. The only climbing Peter does these days is in the esteem of his clients and candidates. The man is tuned in.
