Shortly thereafter, the family moved to Scotland where Ross and his two sisters wandered along the shores of Holy Loch until being transplanted at the age of ten to exotic Virginia Beach. From there, he has performed extensively in the NYC avant-garde theater scene - as a performer in the paratheatre “designer kidnapping” service “Video Games,” & an actor in the stage version of “Debbie Does Dallas.” Once in Los Angeles, he became a dancer/comic performer as a “Man Slice” with comedy rap duo “DC Juicy,” trained at and performed extensively with Hothouse Improv. This led to television performances on Ripe TVs “Hollywood Burn” and sketch-show “This Show Sucks” as well as appearances in online videos with over half a million hits. He then joined vaudeville-cirque-dance troupe “Lucent Dossier” as a performer & dancer across the world including a Phish show, The Edison in Los Angeles, Coachella and the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. He also became a frequent performer and MC with circus-arts-performance troupe “Zen Arts” and an improv dancer/performer/one-man schizophrenic character creator with acid-jazz-fusion band “Helios Jive” as well as a founding member of improv troupe Suddenly Dapper.
