Dictor was raised in Long Island, New York and attended Boston University and the University of Texas in the 1970s.

In 1979, Dictor formed the Reejex, which morphed into a band called the Stains, with long-term musical partner Ron Posner. This later evolved into MDC in the fall of 1981. Dictor and MDC later relocated to San Francisco, California in 1982 and finally to Portland, Oregon in 1995. The band gave various projects different names with the MDC moniker, including Millions Of Dead Cops, Multi Death Corporation, Millions Of Dead Children, and Millions Of Damn Christians. In Portland, Dictor teamed up with Tom Roberts (Pig Champion) in 1997 and put out The Submissives' "An Anvil Will Wear Out Many A Hammer".

Dictor also appeared in the 2006 film American Hardcore, the film based upon the book of the same name. The song "I Remember" also appears in the film and on the soundtrack.
