An outgoing, excited actor eager to work in positive, team-driven projects. With pitch ranging from rambunctious four-year-old to cantankerous senior, I can emulate most any age-group in sound. Also, given several years of both stage acting and singing, I can bring characters to life. I can turn words on a page into a personal experience, adding emotional and vocal dynamic to characters. Despite my current experience, I am motivated to work on new kinds of projects. I am thrilled to meet and work with new actors to provide a genuinely entertaining experience for both listener and coworker alike.

When I was a sophomore in high school, I participated in a few machinima projects. I played Toad in a Mario machinima, as well as a few minor background characters. As of summer of 2015, I play Toadsworth and supply backup voicework (including narration) in the comedic, nerdy, Survivor-based animated web series Toadal Drama Island. Any and all experience in between sophomore year of high school and last summer has been spent in my grandparents' closet, wherein I stretch and sometimes strain my vocal chords to create something new, something fun, and usually something dumb.

Born in Clovis and raised in Pleasant Hill, California-based actor Ryan Shields is known for his radiant glow on stage in several plays, musicals, and musical revues. Some of these performances include but are not limited to: Adam Pontipee in Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, The Poet in David Mamet's Poet and the Rent, a Stanislavski-inspired theater director in Stardust, Agent 13 in Get Smart, and many more. When he's not reading classical literature and writing poetry, Ryan is diligently pondering how to improve his roles in the web-based series Toadal Drama Island as Toadsworth, Professor Elwin Gadd, as well as several background and narratorial roles. Ryan takes the words on the page and gives them a new, lively, personal dimension, one listeners will enjoy and remember for its authenticity and optimism.
