Starr graduated from Newtown High School in Queens, New York in 1968, where he majored in Mechanical Drawing. Although he completed this major, he changed his major to Art prior to graduating. He then moved on to the Pratt/Phoenix Art School, a division of Pratt Institute, in New York City, where he received training as an illustrator. He graduated second in his class in 1975.

He has worked on more art on Star Trek comics than anyone before or since. He has also supplied artwork of various Trek actors and other Sci-Fi show guests for many, many conventions over the years.

However, he recently shot another role in the upcoming sequel, Iron Man 2. His other film credits include the comedies Bedtime Stories and Hotel For Dogs.
