Since then Peter has played many different roles: a priest, a bartender in Camo, and an outlaw in Rattlesnake Gulch.

Peter’s favorite role was that of a Renaissance Warrior in Love at the County Fair.  The entire County Fair series, staged at Janet’s farm, have been Peter’s favorite productions.

Peter works at Hy Vee and enjoys working out at FIT Iowa City.
