Bio

Ross Alan Ford: Full-Stack Developer & Business Operations Wizard

The Saga Begins

In a universe brimming with ordinary Full-Stack Developers, there exists a rare species: Ross, the self-proclaimed savior of Business Operations. With the kind of experience that makes LinkedIn profiles weep with inadequacy, this hero has spent the last six years with A2IM, a 501(c)6 not-for-profit in the US music business.

The Chronicles of A2IM

There, amidst the chaos of creativity, our intrepid warrior single-handedly dragged their IT into the 21st century, introducing them to the mystical cloud. Alongside, they juggled live event productions, presumably while blindfolded, because why not?

The Retail Revolution

Before this epoch, Ross graced a chain of retail stores in Manhattan & Brooklyn with their presence. Here, they dabbled in an emerging disruptive technology, casually revolutionizing their inventory systems.

A Journey Through Industries

But let’s not pigeonhole our protagonist. Their saga spans various realms:

  • Industrial fiber optics (because who doesn't love a bit of networking installation)
  • Medical insurance (thrilling!)
  • Big-box retail (the glamour!)
  • Pawn shop industry (the unexpected twist!)

The Altruistic Turn

Now, in a twist no one saw coming, Ross has been valiantly modernizing the web infrastructure for an organization in the field of physical therapy for traumatic brain injury patients.

A Personal Note

On a personal note, Ross claims to be a father, musician, and gamer. Their odyssey from Tampa to Tennessee to New York City reads like a hero's journey, only with more synthesizers and less dragons. Now in Chattanooga with a son and a cat named Dwayne (because why not?).

The Conclusion

So there you have it: Ross Alan Ford, not just a Full-Stack Developer, but a legend in their own lunchtime, a sarcastic savior in the silicon-saturated saga of software development. Because in a world of codes and cloud, who else are you going to call?
