He began his career as an activist documentary filmmaker covering the 1960s Chicano civil rights movement.  But throughout all these efforts, he was hounded by his demanding and persistent Inner Nerd, which triumphed when he began directing episodes of SeaquestStar Trek: VoyagerStar Trek: Deep Space Nine, Babylon FiveSpace Above and Beyond, and the two-hour TNT movie Babylon Five: Third Space.
