In 2008 Ross graduated from the highly regarded University College Dublin School of Music. He began his career as a freelance composer and creative sound designer writing music for short films and commercial campaigns for clients including Renault, Radió Telefís Éireann (RTÉ), the Irish Film Institute, and The Porterhouse Brewing Company. In 2013, he began exploring the world of interactive media and video game sound.
