It is nearly 50 years since Ross left the family beef and dairy farm in South Gippsland for the City. Ross has worked on some big projects across Australia in planning and execution as a Surveyor; Johnson St Bridges, Tullamarine Airport precinct expansion, Monash University expansion, Synchrotron, Bulk Landfill projects, Tullamarine Freeway widening as well as a myriad of others across Victoria. Working on projects in the great N-W at Argyle diamond mine underground, on Barrow Island’s Gorgon Project, at Onslow on the Wheatstone Gas Project, wild times. Ross enjoys all the things regional Victoria offers, fishing, hunting, target shooting, wineries and boutique eateries.
Another great passion is photography and Ross manages to combine this and his love of music with a step into live music photography. The poor lighting, with the awkward stages has led to a list of 200 plus bands and musicians letting Ross get up close & personal, "originality is necessary to keep my interest." Ross has great interest in broadcasting centred around the music and making constant improvements to playlists, both in style and quality. Blues, Rock, Jazz, Country, Alt-Country, Soul and fusions of any of those holds a great fascination for his ears.
Ross loves seeing a project develop from an idea, sometimes off the back of a cigarette pack, to a thriving and bustling precinct. 'I like things to be correct if not exact with all the various and widely varied parts coming together as a Community should.'
