If you were to ask Wikipedia, they would say I'm an American, actor, director, producer, writer, etc, but I would like to add some titles even more important to me; sailor, educator and father. You might know me for my roles in countless TV shows; as Q in Star Trek; Discord in My Little Pony; or Donald Margolis in Breaking Bad. But you might not know me as someone who has sailed the Pacific Ocean to Tahiti and back or who has written, produced and directed numerous shows for symphony orchestras or directed operas. Or, better still, was the host of the children's concerts at Disney Hall.
As a little boy I discovered my love for science fiction by reading Jules Verne's Mysterious Island, and watching (with one eye squeezed shut) The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits. As an adult I created a company called Alien Voices with Leonard Nimoy. We re-created old radio broadcasts of classic science fiction stories such as Journey to the Center of the Earth, The Lost World and The Time Machine. We even went on to produce sci-fi spectacles for the Sci-Fi Channel.
