Ross was born in England and raised in Texas and North Carolina, which must be why so many people think he’s from Australia.
His passion for writing landed him a scholarship to an 8-week NYFA screenwriting course with Dan Kay (Pay the Ghost, I.T.), and his first TV pilot, The Relief, was a finalist in ScreenCraft’s Pilot Launch and Screenwriting Fellowship. His next pilot, What Darkness Brings, is a top-ranked script on The Black List and was selected for the ATX/Black List Writers Program.
He also directed and co-produced award-winning webseries The Verge in NYC and wore a half-dozen hats on his Western short film, Tell No Tales, now streaming on Amazon Prime.
Ross is currently writing a new sci-fi pilot and a Western feature. He lives and dreams in Los Angeles.
