After receiving his BFA in Theatre Performance from Otterbein College, Peyton traveled across the country on the gypsy-like journey as an actor. While in Philadelphia, he was introduced to the world of first-person interpretation, and found an exciting new world of sharing history through a personal lens. Peyton has been seen portraying historic figures for the Republican National Convention, Independence National Historical Park, and the National Archives, and appearing in documentaries on A&E and PBS.
Peyton has been a part of American Historical Theatre since 2001. He continues to research and travel, endeavoring to combine his passions of performance and American history. His goal is to bring to light the accomplishments as well as the imperfections of our founders, framers, and other famous figures. Look beyond the statue, bring them off the pedestal altogether, and see the very real everyman beneath.
