Like many denizens of Santa Fe, Peter Lloyd has had a varied past. Born in England, he completed a bachelor’s degree in economics as well as an apprenticeship as a joiner and cabinetmaker there. He then came to the U.S., where he received a Ph.D. in American history and - later – a master’s degree in architecture. Peter has taught college and post-graduate courses in history, building technology, and design and detailing for wood construction, in addition to working briefly as a museum director. In 1989 he founded WoodTech Corporation, an architectural woodwork firm that he moved to New Mexico in 1994.
