Peter Dibble

Plasma Cutting Resource Manager - When not managing the BMW lot at Tulley Automotive, Peter can frequently be found dabbling in graphic design, videography, and animation, but his first love is 3-D design. Since joining the Lab, he’s learned new concepts and technologies for his installation sculptures, so he felt it was only fair to give back and teach others what he knew.
