He began his career in television commercials in his native Canada before moving to Los Angeles in 1987. After guest appearances on popular shows such as 21 Jump Street, MacGyver and Quantum Leap, Priestley landed a recurring role as an orphan on the short-lived sitcom Sister Kate, in 1989.

Priestly went on to pursue a career in race car driving and in 2002 was seriously injured in a crash at the Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Kentucky.
