Peter Mueller | Seniors | email.
Moved into Barron Park in 1980 after starting a two-decade career at EPRI on Hillview Ave. First job that was within easy bicycle distance. I remained active as an environmental research scientist for 63 years; for 50 of these years the research involved large groups in which local, state, national and international government and private sector folks participated. It’s great to apply such experience in the service of my local community.

We have been Barron Park residents since 2011. I enjoy walking around Bol Park and love seeing Niner and Perry (hidden gems of Palo Alto). Outside Barron Park, me and my family like spending time in Downtown Palo Alto and appreciating the nature around our area. Our son graduated from Gunn in 2014 and daughter is currently a Sophomore at Gunn.

I’ve lived in Barron Park since 1977, raising three kids through Creekside, Juana Briones, JLS and Gunn. I taught French language and literature at the college level before switching to a career in foreign language textbook writing and publishing. Joining the BPA Board in 2016 and working on our newsletter is giving me an extraordinary new view of our unique neighborhood and its neighbors.
