An Albuquerque native, Ross joined DMC after graduating from the Colorado School of Mines with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. While in school, he spent a lot of time playing with Arduinos, Raspberry Pis, and the Robot Operating System (only partially because its commonly used acronym, ROS, is his namesake). Prior to attending CSM, he worked for a Malaysian solar company, which involved designing and programming LabVIEW-based test equipment, living in Kuala Lumpur, and becoming spoiled from eating too much delicious food. Ross enjoys mountain biking, hiking, eating, and playing video games in his free time.
