One of these guys is me.

Oh hello.

My name is Ross and I’m a creative based in NYC.

Growing up in Chicago, I had so many big ideas that never seemed to go anywhere. A career in advertising was a no-brainer.

Since then I’ve had the pleasure of working with great brands and awesome people at agencies like R/GA, Saatchi & Saatchi and 72andSunny. Aside from a brief stint as a professional ghost hunter it’s probably the best job I’ve ever had.

When I’m not making ads I’m probably writing comedy, turning knobs on a synthesizer or making soup.
