Peter Conroy is the senior writer at The Climate Reality Project where he oversees message strategy and execution for the organization’s marketing and fundraising initiatives. Prior to joining Climate Reality, he worked as a writer, fundraiser, and curator with leading New York literary and arts institutions including The Paris Review and Brooklyn Academy of Music. His career has also included stints as a bartender to biker gangs, bike messenger, homeless advocate, and occasional math teacher in the NYC public school system, proving time and again that there really is nothing you can’t do with a graduate degree in English literature. Except, perhaps, retire early. Outside of the office, Peter thinks of himself as a cyclist in much the same way Keanu Reeves thinks of himself as an actor and, as a supporter of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club for three decades, has become a virtual Buddhist, discovering every weekend the truth of the dictum “Existence is suffering.” He is married to a beautiful woman with thankfully poor vision and lives in Denver with two wonderful, but intellectually challenged dogs who frequently outsmart him.
