Meet the POP "Surgeons"
Stacey Fearheiley was born and raised in Nashville, TN. She grew up watching and critiquing old movies with her dad so much that it became second nature. She then surrounded herself in high school, college and life with other "like minded" judgementals and has continued analyzing entertainment and pop culture since. She is an actor, director, writer and former on-air radio personality and still hasn't figured out what she'll be when she grows up.
Eric Peterson grew up all over the world in a US Navy family, and initially dreamed of a career in the theatre as an actor, director, and writer. However, a job that required him to constantly look for the next job ultimately didn't appeal to him, so after getting his B.A. in Theatre, he started a new career as an educator and consultant in the field of Diversity & Inclusion. But he never stopped loving the stage, or the big screen. Or the small screen, for that matter.
Stacey and Eric met when they were cast as twin sister & brother in a play in 1992. They got along so well and so immediately that their cast-mates began to refer to them as the "womb-mates," an homage to the relationship of their characters. In 2016, Stacey informed Eric that she was formulating a New Years' resolution, and that Eric was going to play a big part in it -- and the idea for POPeration! was born.
