Originally a student of art and music, Ross found his professional creative interests move into the field of technology. After majoring in music at NTSU (aka UNT), Ross went on to writing business software in the 1980s and continued software development until the 2000s. With the introduction of the internet, web design brought a whole new canvass to explore. Web applications were born, and with it, creative design invaded the conventional business software development model. Graphic design became an integral component of creating compelling web applications and business presentations. Ross began using photography and art as mediums for designing interactive business presentations. Today, Ross has come full circle and has returned to exploring his creativity by combining photography, pen and ink, watercolor and other digital art forms for making unique visual art.
