Peter has a passion for everything he does! After graduating from Murray State University, he has worn many hats, from youth pastor to truck driver and, most recently, head chef and director of food services for nearly ten years at a conference center. Peter enjoys trading and learning more about crypto assets as they continue to gain momentum. He believes that, very soon, the increasing popularity of crypto assets will have investors begging the question, "How did we ever live without them?" Peter is married and has three children. He loves his family, adventure, and the outdoors in his beloved Pacific Northwest.
