expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

Peter Braasch (1972- ) grew up in Durham, N.C. He attended C. E. Jordan High School and then went on to Yale University, 1990-1994, where he pursued a double major in history and environmental studies. In 1994, Braasch conducted fieldwork for his senior thesis about the history of the commercial shrimping industry in coastal North Carolina. During the previous two summers, Braasch had worked for the Coastal Federation, a non-profit environmental group based in Newport, N.C. Through this work and time spent in the region while growing up, Braasch became familiar with issues involving the North Carolina shrimping industry. After this study, Braasch moved to the Washington, D.C., area, and continued environmental work for a time with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and Restore America's Estuaries, a national federation. In 2000, he was working for a business research management firm.
