Roger Ryan

Warm, authoritative, characterizations

Voice Description

I most often employ a warm, authoritative tone for commercial and instructional voice-overs, but can easily make the "read" more conversational if requested. I can provide a deeper cadence for dramatic narration or a unique character voice for more creative copy.

My Voice Experience

I've worked as a professional voice talent since 1986, specializing in TV ads. From automotive dealerships to jewelry stores, from retail to direct response, I've done them all many times over.

As the lead in-house voice announcer for Comcast Spotlight in southeastern Michigan (2001-2008), I performed on more than a thousand promos including those for cable networks like ESPN, Lifetime, MTV, HBO and SHOWTIME. But wait...there's more: My voice work experience extends to industrial projects, municipality programming, website instruction, phone messaging, even feature-length dramatic film.

Additional Skills

In addition to my voice-over career, I have extensive experience in video and film production, working as a writer, director, videographer, editor, gaffer (lighting designer) and grip. I have contributed my talents to thousands of TV commercials, numerous long-form videos and short dramatic films and several feature-length projects. I'm adept at working independently, in collaboration with production teams and advertising agencies, and as a department manager. I have received 20 national awards recognizing excellence in creative production including multiple Telly, Aurora, Communicator and Videographer awards.

And, as I believe all voice talents should, I've worked professionally as an actor as well, both on stage and in front of a camera.
