Serving the communities of Kenwood, Glen Ellen and Oakmont

Alec Peters


Alec was born and raised in San Francisco, and moved up to Kenwood with his family in 1994. Before purchasing the Kenwood Press with his wife, Ann, Alec worked for The Recorder legal newspaper in San Francisco as a reporter. When not busy looking for typos or going to meetings , Alec likes to relax by cheering on the San Francisco Giants along with the other local sports teams, following politics, hanging out with his three children, and trying to train his two dogs, Kona and Dolly.
