He was born in Yakima, Washington, and died in Los Angeles, California. Some of his television appearances include "War Horse", an episode of The Lone Ranger and "Rope of Lies", an episode of The Virginian. He appeared twice on the early series, The Range Rider, starring Jock Mahoney and Dick Jones. He appeared as the Apache Geronimo in the 1950s syndicated television series Stories of the Century, starring and narrated by Jim Davis as a fictional railroad detective.
