Bryan TolinAssistant Director, Manny Dunning
Bryan hates the physical labors of writing and avoids them at all costs. Also despises with a passion everything he has ever written. He prefers to live simply – 8 hours pulling weeds is far more attractive to him than 8 hours in front of a computer. He does not have a website – and would rather surf the ocean. His memory has gotten so bad he can’t remember if he has 12 cats and 1 wife, or 12 wives and 1 cat.
