In 1985, a small cadre of FBI Agents were hand-picked to receive training in what was then called “Psychological Profiling.” Pete was fortunate to have been chosen to be a part of this elite group of original profilers. Extensive training followed, and in addition
to his regular investigative responsibilities, Pete was the Profiling Coordinator for the Omaha Division which encompassed Iowa and Nebraska.
Pete worked with agencies in the Midwest on violent crime cases in addition to training hundreds of officers in the newly-implemented “Psychological Profiling” program.

Pete says the brightest decision he ever made in his life was joining the Navy. "While serving aboard subs wasn't exactly my idea of 'fun,' it did give me a chance to grow up and to chart a course for the rest of my life."
