The man behind Petey Fisk, Charlene Bumiller, and dozens more – who along with his co-star, Joe Sears, embodies the entire town of Greater Tuna – is a quiet, unassuming fellow who began acting when he was a teenager three decades ago and never looked back. He's still acting, taking on roles in shows as diverse as The Laramie Project, Tru, and Uncle Vanya, but now he's also looking back, building a second small universe as a playwright, and this year's I'm Not Lying opened a realistic world of memories that in the long run will grow beyond the boundaries of shy little Tuna. All we ask is to be taken along for the wonderful theatrical ride.
