Born And Raised: Kenosha, WI

Home Sweet Home: Lives in the moun­tain com­mu­nity of Lake Ar­row­head, CA. “I just painted my cabin last year. It took 10 full days of bal­anc­ing pre­car­i­ously on a lad­der. A good metaphor for my ca­reer [laughs].”

Y&R Run: 1986-89, 2004, 2009-10, 2011

Still Ve­gan: “I ab­so­lutely be­lieve my diet is cru­cial to my health, and I ex­er­cise daily. I do squats for my legs and butt. It’s funny that even in my iso­lated par­adise I never sit still. Never could.”

Pet Project: Bierdz has two res­cue dogs, David and Go­liath. “Go­liath, un­for­tu­nately, is ag­gres­sive to all an­i­mals but David, and he can be quite vi­cious. The shel­ter didn’t dis­close Go­liath’s past, and as he has many scars on his body, some think he may have been used as a bait dog. I ac­tu­ally chain him to my waist dur­ing our noon walks around the wind­ing for­est roads, so he can’t pos­si­bly at­tack any­thing or any­one.”

Out­look On Grow­ing Older: “I ig­nore neg­a­tive no­tions about ag­ing and get in­spi­ra­tion from Youtube: 80-year-old body­builders, 100-year-old pi­lots and 120-year-old monks. Be­lief is cru­cial to one’s health, so I try to fo­cus on the pos­i­tive!”
