PETER MARSHALL CO-FOUNDER

STRATEGY & OPERATIONS

Born in Atlanta (USA), Peter graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Economics before he pursued his dream of becoming a professional swimmer.

During his career as a swimmer, Peter claimed two world titles, eight world records and enjoyed eleven consecutive years on the US National Team. Throughout his professional swimming career, he had the privilege to travel extensively on the World Cup Circuit and other events, rooting a deep appreciation of travel as more than just tourism. 

Peter is a qualified Pure Apnea freediving instructor, Los Angeles County ocean lifeguard and acclaimed underwater photographer. Using his extensive in-water skills, Peter is best known for capturing human/ animal interactions underwater on one breath, with no artificial light.

Passionate about seeing sustainability in both business and sports, Peter is the driving force behind the social entrepreneurship model of I AM WATER Ocean Travel.

Being still in the water and using no artificial light Peter was able to spend an unusually long time in the water with this large fish.
