Eiding, who is originally from Cleveland, Ohio, and an avid Indians fan, began his professional acting, directing, and writing career over 30 years ago. He sang, played bass, and directed the 3rd Infantry Div, Marne Glee Club, in Germany. Later, while creating and performing comedy sketches at the Brave New Workshop in Minneapolis, Mn, Eiding also contributed as a writer/actor to National Public Radio's, "All Things Considered" supplying topical satirical material. He went on to write and perform for the PBS series Night Time. He has directed stage shows in Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota and California. Eiding has also written and directed several short films and videos.
He moved to Los Angeles in 1983. The following year he received both an L.A. Drama Critics Circle Award and Dramalogue Award for his work in the critically acclaimed stage production of Cloud Nine. He was a series regular on ABC's, The Charmings, and for two seasons, recurred as school teacher Jason Steinberg, on the highly acclaimed Picket Fences. He has guest-starred in numerous TV shows such as ER, Murphy Brown, Star Trek-The Next Generation, The Pretender, The Drew Carey Show, The Practice, Who's The Boss?, L.A. Law, and Cheers.
Eiding starred in such films as Nightbreaker, with 'Emilio Estevez', produced by Martin Sheen's Symphony Pictures, The Personals directed by Peter Markle, Madhouse, with 'John Larrouquette', and Biodome with 'Pauley Shore'. He has guest starred in several movies for television including Unspeakable Acts, with Jill Clayburgh, Hands That See, starring 'Courtney Cox', Runaway Car, with Judge Reinhold, and Dark Reflection, in which he was murdered by C. Thomas Howell. He also starred as Irving, an award winning short film about the first Jewish vampire.
He believes in the old theatre axiom, "The more you can do- the more you will do", so he also can be heard on many national television and radio voiceovers. He has been a featured voice in many cartoon series and CD Rom games.
Eiding has finished writing a teleplay about the melding together of different ethnic cultures, entitled Cross Currents. He is currently developing a one act play about family secrets entitled, In Their Own Defense, and a two-act, one-man show, with five actors (not an easy task) entitled, The Men In Me. Eiding is a proud member of The Antaeus Theatre Company.
His longest running roles are those of husband of 28 years, and father of two beautiful daughters. These are the most challenging, and easily, most satisfying roles of his career.
