Roiff grew up in Boston, Massachusetts and graduated from Harvard University with honors and a bachelor's in government. Despite a background in theatre and government, he initially pursued a career in the world of finance. After stints at CIBC World Markets and The Parthenon Group -a boutique CEO Advisory Firm, he decided to leave that world behind and build a career in Hollywood.
After moving to Los Angeles, Roiff immediately began producing local theatre. From there, he naturally segued into film as he formed Night & Day Pictures, an independent film production and finance company. The company was formed with the goal of creating high quality motion pictures with a focus on story and character.
Currently, Roiff is in pre-production on the feature AMERICAN SON written by Eric Schmid and to be directed by Neil Abramson. He is producing with Danielle Renfrew. The film, starring Nick Cannon, follows the story of a young marine on leave in Bakersfield, CA as he spends his final days at home before deploying to Iraq.
Roiff is also in the midst of prepping to shoot BALL DON'T LIE -based on the Random House book of the same title written by Matt de la Pena. The film, written and to be directed by Brin Hill follows the story of a young boy bounced around by the foster care system who finds his real family while playing streetball inside a Venice gym.
