Peter was born in San Jose, California, starting at an early age he was ready to take on the world and anything that came in his way. At age 6, his parents, Phu and Le Nguyen, picked up their bags and kids and took a permanent road trip to sunny Florida.
At age 12, Peter’s father passed away right before his eyes and from that day forward, he was never the same. His father’s death ignited a deeper passion in Peter that changed his life forever.
At age 16, he was the youngest to receive top sales performance out of 600 (3 months in a row). He received countless awards in mathematics competition statewide and nationally. His senior year in high school, he was able to place top 10 in the world in Mathematics at the International Science & Engineering Fair in San Jose, CA.
Peter wanted more than just head knowledge from a Business degree at the University of Florida. At age 19, he started his first company, WhizNotes, to get practical business experience.
