Biography

Ross was born in New Jersey, USA. He later moved to Johannesburg SA in 2005 and subsequently to the UK in 2019, where he now resides. Extensive travel between the US, UK, Europe and Africa gave Ross a fascination for accents and differing dialects.

Whilst training in performance arts, he developed a passion for voice acting, furthering his love of accents. Ross studied voice with award winning South African music director, Rowan Bakker and gained his Grade 8 qualification and ACTL degree from Trinity Guildhall London.

He trained with The Mocap Vaults and completed his UK Bare Arms Films Theatrical Firearms Course Level 1. Along with his stage and screen background, Ross has experience in voiceovers for drama, corporates, audiobooks, live concerts, and videogames.
