RYAN DRUMMOND -Born in Ohio, raised in Michigan, and now based in San Francisco, CA, Mr. Drummond is an actor, singer, juggler, mime instructor, and voiceover artist who feels that variety is the spice of a career. He has been performing his whole life, but is most proud of the fact that he has made a living exclusively in “the biz” since 1994. Remember 1994? Cell phones first started, “Pulp Fiction” was in movie theaters, “Friends” was in its first year on television? What a wild ride that lead us all here tonight!
A graduate of Eastern Michigan University with emphases on Theatre Arts and Psychology, Mr. Drummond has been in a world premiere play written by Aaron Sorkin (“The Farnsworth Invention”), made three albums with his acappella quartet (“The A.Y.U. Quartet”), became a certified trainer of Polish and French mime, juggled for orcas and otters at Sea World of San Diego, harmonized mid-ocean on Regency Cruise Lines, tried to audition for “Pippin” and didn’t make the cheer squad in the movie Bring It On, nearly had his nose blown off by a confetti cannon in Kauai, Hawaii (hi ho the glamorous life!), appeared in many commercials (including one where Pat Sajak signed his forehead with a sharpie on the set of Wheel Of Fortune), made his national television debut on BAYWATCH alongside David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, and was the original voice of “Sonic The Hedgehog” in millions of videogames across the world for Sega Gaming Corp.
Mr. Drummond is a member of AEA, SAG-AFTRA, and AGVA, and distinctly remembers reading “Men Are From Mars. Women Are From Venus” as he was taking the train from JFK airport to Manhattan to appear on “The Rosie O’Donnell Show” back in December of 1998. Almost 2 decades later, here he is to tell you all about it!
