Rogers started off as a stage and television actor. He had always been a fan of anime, and in 2001, he got his first role, a small part on ''Assemble Insert'' as Prime Minister. Since then, he has gone on to voice many notable characters in various anime series. He is known among fans and coworkers for his sense of humor.
Rogers began to provide voices for the Pokémon anime, starting with ''[[The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon]]'', when {{TPCi|Pokémon USA}} and [[TAJ Productions]] [[Pokémon USA recasting controversy|took over the dubbing and distribution of the anime]]. He had taken over the roles of {{an|Brock}}, [[Scott]], and [[Drew]] for [[S09|the ninth season]],; and he requested to provide the voice of {{TP|Brock|Bonsly}} as well. Most notably, he provided the voice of [[Brock's Sudowoodo]] and {{TP|Brock|Croagunk}}, and also [[Ash's Infernape]], for ''[[Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl]]''. As of ''[[M10|The Rise of Darkrai]]'', Rogers began doing the script timing for episodes. With the departure of Brock as a series regular at the end of ''[[Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl]]'', Rogers' contributions to the series was reduced, although he did continue to voice minor characters (such as [[Ghetsis]]) and Pokémon, including [[Cilan's Stunfisk]] and [[Dawn's Quilava]], and reprised as Brock for subsequent appearances.
Many of his Pokémon roles were previously done by [[Darren Dunstan]] or [[Eric Stuart]] in the [[4Kids Entertainment|4Kids]] dub.
