Arthur has had several careers before discovering acting and directing.  He was a cancer researcher, academic (musicologist), and former musician.  Although he was once a classical musician--playing violin in the New England Philharmonic for 5 years, and frequent concert appearances as a pianist and orchestra and opera conductor--he now primarly plays Scottish folk fiddle.  Other talents include stage combat, Tai Chi, yoga, banjo, step dancing, computer programming.  He is also a BookPal member.

Arthur speaks some French and German, and a bit of Russian.  His athletic pastimes include both downhill and cross-country skis at an advanced level.  At a more adventurous period in his life, he used to rock and ice climb. 
 
Not only a graduate of Harvard University as a musicologist, he is most proud of his degree from Harvard's bartending school.
