Pete grew up in a small town in CT, attended summer illustration courses at Parson’s School of Design, NYC, before graduating high school, then studied Renewable Natural Resources at the University of Connecticut. He settled in Seattle in 1995, where trained at Seattle’s Diver’s Institute of Technology, to weld, salvage, and survey underwater. Pete went on to be a wildlife guide in Alaska and Mexico. At the age of 36, he went back to school for Digital Multimedia, followed by 12 years of filming around the world for the luxury travel industry. Pete’s past work allows him to appreciate his co-worker’s creativity and thrive on interacting with Gaspar’s diverse clientele.
There is nothing in the world Pete loves more than being in the old growth rainforests of the PNW, other than being pulverized by massive ocean swells while body surfing.
