In 1996 he started as the drive time host on Classic Hits, first in Wanganui and then Hamilton. Over the years, Roman has held many roles within radio, TV, and as a voice over artist. You may have seen Roman hosting the London and Paris editions of 'The Twenty Dollar Challenge' or on Sky Movies 'Big Picture Show'. 5 years ago, Roman became a mentor for the Big Buddy organisation. He became a mentor to Aidan after his two daughters moved away from home, "I felt this empty void and wanted to keep doing something."
