Ryan began his trek into the world of show business during high school when he took a job at a small PBS affiliate in east-central Illinois.
Here he involved himself with everything from set design and construction to narrating documentaries and directing live television broadcasts.
He studied at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale's Department of Cinema before heading to Los Angeles and continuing his education at Columbia College-Hollywood.
During his tenure at CCH, Heppe was hired by legendary producer David Foster (The Getaway, Short Circuit, The Mask of Zorro) and quickly climbed to the
position of Head of Development where he became involved with Foster's productions: Collateral Damage starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Hart's War starring
Bruce Willis and Colin Farrell, and The Core starring Aaron Eckhart and Hilary Swank.
As a hyphenate Producer/Director/Writer/Actor, some of Heppe's work includes: Production of the docu-drama The Magic Was In The Music,
a remake of Short Circuit, adaptations of the 80's television mini-series V and cop series T.J. Hooker, among others. As an actor,
he's starred in such stage productions as You Can't Take It With You, Life On The Bowery, Dracula and Picnic at Hanging Rock - several of which he directed.
In the world of VO, he's lent his voice to numerous commercials, both national and regional, and performs several characters on the animated series DaGeDar.
He's currently the voice of Marriage Today, and is endorsed by Georg Neumann, a worldwide leading manufacturer of studio microphones and a comprehensive accessories program.
Ryan E. Heppe, a native of Homer, Illinois - a farm community - currently resides in Los Angeles where he can be seen cheering for the Dodgers
or taking in a movie at the ArcLight. He is an avid bowler; enjoys a tasty bottle of wine; and spends as much time as he can with his lovely wife.
