Life and career
He appeared as a policeman named Harker in the pilot and all 10 episodes of Hawaiian Heat in the fall of 1984 on ABC. The show quickly failed pitted against the ratings juggernaut Dallas. In the fall of 1986, he then appeared as another cop, Sergeant Luke Halui, in all 13 episodes of Heart of the City. It was the second lowest rated show that season, due to having to do battle with NBC's Top 20 hits The Golden Girls and Amen, as well as losing out to CBS's show The New Mike Hammer. It ranked only 78th out of 79 shows and lasted only 13 episodes.
Probably his most well known and prominent television role was in 1990s hit syndicated television series Renegade as Bobby Sixkiller. He also appeared in a minor role as Moki in the pilot episode of Magnum, P.I., before the role was taken over by another actor for the series (he played several bad guy bit parts in later episodes). His many other television appearances include series such as Walker, Texas Ranger, The A-Team and The Highwayman. He has appeared in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Action Jackson, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, Aces: Iron Eagle III, Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man, Christopher Columbus: The Discovery, and in The Scorpion King, as Mathayus's half-brother.
