One of several students from the University seeking an intern position under Vince Masuka,
Peter is a tall, large man with curly brown hair and a beard. He wears basic corporate casual clothing with a lab coat when at the forensics department and then a pair of dress pants with a flannel shirt at crime scenes.
Peter appears to be a shy, quiet individual who is somewhat nervous. Apparently, he is very bright, scoring the highest on Masuka's test to see who could become his intern. Unfortunately, he has a weak stomach and faints at a crime scene.
Peter attends the University where Vince Masuka teaches a Forensics studies class. He arrives at the police station, alongside several other students, including Ryan Chambers, to tour the Miami Metro Police Department in order to get a feel for the field work they're pursuing. In the Homicide Department, he nearly bumps into Debra Morgan who asks who he is and why he's in her way. Nervously, he replies with his name and mentions his purpose as visiting under the watchful eye of "Professor Masuka."
He later appears with the other students outside the crime scene for Omar Rivera's fruit stand. Masuka preaches over who can become his coveted intern and Peter ends up landing the position.
At the next crime scene where Omar's body is situated, Peter is shown working the scene, snapping photographs as the others arrive. His declaration that clearly the victim is dead is less than impressive to Debra and Masuka's teammates, and he proceeds to stand off as they examine the body. When snakes begin pouring out of the body from an opening in the stitching made by Dexter, he steps back holding his mouth. Soon thereafter he faints and according to Masuka's following quote, he is replaced by Ryan: "Goodbye Big Guy...Hello Runner-Up, little Miss Hottie!"
