Millbrook, New York Project

The Mayfly Project is a selfless and caring initiative focused on kids that deserve a leg up in life. I can’t wait see this project come to life in Millbrook and to play a part in giving these children hope, support and confidence, all through an immersive experience with nature.

PETER MURPHY, LEAD MENTOR

Millbrook, New York

I grew up in the UK and moved to the US in 2008 with my wife Jaime, originally living in Boston, MA and then moving to the Hudson Valley, NY in 2016. My work has been focused on Human Resources and Talent Management and I currently manage the leadership hiring for BNY Mellon in New York. Over recent years I have been involved in our local community as a board member of a local charitable preschool improving access to high quality preschool education for members of our local community. More recently I have been learning to fly fish some of the beautiful rivers of the Hudson Valley, NY. I look forward to participating in this amazing project and giving others the opportunity to enjoy nature through fishing experiences.
