About Ryan

I've been acting for over 30 years. Ive been in plays, musicals, film, web, TV, Features, short films, commercials, puppet shows, stand-up, clowning, voice over for video-games, and for commercials.
Some of the things I've been in have been Chronicles of Riddick with Vin Diesel, Arrow, commercials for Happy Water, and CJay FM.

As a director I started directing stage at 18 my first play was one I wrote for a play festival in Ottawa "Stuck With Being Me" which i won a best director award. After this I established my company Dumbguyproductions. I've directed scetch comedy shows where I was a founder as well as a writer. Those groups were with "The Dumbguys" and "Damën and Herron". I moved into film directing with the Comedy group "Damën and Herron" where I directed several video scetches for a mixed media show at "Little Mountain Theatre." in Vancouver .
My first short "Mansturation" was a winner at the "Crazy 8's Film Festival" I was also a co-writer on that.
I'm currently directing and writing two web series. One is a foodie show I'm producing with Mack Benz called "Cascadia on Fire." Where we showcase the hidden gem reasturants of the west coast. The other is the web series "Iz and Mt."
I've written in all formats as a screen writer, I'm mostly a comedic writer but I have dabbled in other genres. I was also hired by screenwriters as a consultant, and script Doctor.

  • Road to Victory

    Road to Victory (2007)
    Film (Drama and Sport) Actor An injured college athlete, accused of taking steroids, falls for a stripper, but is unable to perform sexually. The relationship oscillates between tender and cruel; issues of infidelity, along with doubts about his ability to father children arise, as his on-field performance begins to decline, putting his draft status at stake. Road To Victory is a thoughtful look at the role of gender in the patient / physician relationship, limits imposed on physicians by changes in the health-care industry, and even the limits of drugs designed to replace the physicians. It asks the question of what level of fidelity is acceptable in a relationship where sex isn't possible. And lastly, it looks behind sensationalized media headlines over steroid abuse, at the human elements that really drive athletes to succeed, and the price associated with the choices required to achieve that success.
