Peter’s passions include spending time with his wife and family, experiencing different places and cultures, reading and learning new things, science and nature, snorkeling and scuba diving, bike riding, and mentoring young adults.
Not long after he arrived in Raleigh, Peter met and later married Debbie, a lovely and true “Southern Bell”. Debbie is a native of Raleigh, and she knows all the good places to visit, shop, and eat.
