Born Jack Stephen Burton in Indianapolis, Indiana, Mr. Burton was raised in the Midwest, attending several different high schools in the nation's heartland before moving with his father to California. Before graduating from Beverly Hills High school -- "a world apart from the environment I was accustomed to," Mr. Burton emphasizes -- he studied drama and was a member of the school's acclaimed Theatre 40.
A very successful career in commercials led to a three-year run on the popular syndicated comedy series, Out of This World, in which he played the role of Chris Fuller. He made his daytime drama debut in the recurring role of Harris Michaels on Days of Our Lives
A gifted and enthusiastic athlete, Mr. Burton enjoys virtually every sport, but prefers surfing above them all. He and his wife, Sheree, are the happy parents to two children. The family lives in the Los Angeles area.
