Ross has been playing BattleTech since 1995, though only seriously collecting miniatures since 1999. It was at this time that he discovered the internet and the online BattleTech community that it was created for. His interest was sparked again in the game and miniatures in particular. Since that time, he has collected miniatures and appropriated painting styles and tricks along the way. He might be rather slow in his delivery, but he will deliver… when he gets around to it! Ross has contributed both as a play tester and as a miniature artist to select books over the last few years. As for real life, Ross is a graduate from the University of Oklahoma, with a Bachelors of Fine Art, Studio Art, a minor in Art History, and a Bachelors of Fine Art, Art Education from the University of Central Oklahoma. He is currently employed as a high school art teacher at a local high school teaching Art 1 and Art 2 Painting/Drawing courses.
