He arrived in the United States in September 1907, having sailed from Southampton to New York on the S/S St. Louis. His Broadway debut came in The Hoyden (1907). His other plays on Broadway included The Kiss Burglar (1918) and Spice of 1922 (1922).
He appeared in films such as The Temptress (1926) with actresses such as Greta Garbo, making some 82 film appearances between 1917 and 1941. After 1933, the majority of his small roles in films went uncredited.
A United Press article published in 1939 described Kaliz as "one of the leading wholesale liquor dealers in the West." He became involved with the business after the repeal of Prohibition when he was a wine taster for an importer.
