Bio:
Peter has been scuba diving both recreationally and technically since the 1970’s in New York and New England. Peter is also an avid cave diver and Cave Diving Instructor. An Electrical Engineer by trade he opened his first two dive shops with Brett Floren, also an engineer by trade with his own separate engineering firm, in the Orlando area in 2004. Peter divided his time between his engineering company and the dive shops during that time. Later, in 2011, Peter and his new local Martin County partner opened another store, Stuart Scuba and shared the time between the dive shops and their primary occupations. Not long after opening Stuart Scuba Peter sold his engineering company and retired to work exclusively in the diving industry. Peter currently holds instructorships in multiple recreational agencies (NAUI, SDI, IANTD, DAN, and PADI) with Technical Course Director Level and Course Examiner instructorships in NAUI, SDI, and TDI. Peter teaches and holds certifications for the overhead, multiple models of Rebreathers and also offers Technical instruction with TDI, NACD, IANTD, and NSSCDS. Peter continues to be a very active Technical diving Instructor, Instructor Development instructor and is currently the Director of Operations for a total of 5 dive shops including Cave Excursions.
