Performer:

Ross trained as an actor in Vancouver from 2010 - 2013 while auditioning and performing in theatre, film & television, web series, and stand up comedy.  He auditioned for the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and was offered a partial scholarship for their New York campus. However, Ross was also seriously practicing yoga and meditation which led him to step away from performing in order to devote his time to spiritual pursuits. He kept his performing spirit alive, periodically training, doing readings, and participating in improv comedy. In October 2022 he stepped back into the world of performing arts playing the co-lead role of Patrick in Kico Gonzalez-Riso's "Timepiece" at the the Heritage Playhouse in Gibsons BC. In April 2023 he was on stage again in the co-leading role, Phil Grady, in David King's comedy "The Garage Sale," also at the Heritage Playhouse.
