Peter is currently Manager, Standards Development at the School Curriculum and Standards Authority in Western Australia, and is an experienced author and teacher of Japanese at the secondary level. He has worked on creating many innovative resources for Japanese language learning, including Japanese textbooks, national and state curricula, online resources and several Japanese series aired on television. Peter's love and fascination with obento led him to see how the many parts of a well-balanced Japanese course could be connected in a uniquely Japanese package, which led him to develop the concept for this series.
