At the age of fourteen, Ross was already handling A-list talent on the red carpet. As the son of Drama Desk Awards executive producer Robert R. Blume, Ross grasped the fundamentals of talent relations like other kids learned how to ride a bike. A native New Yorker, Ross graduated cum laude in Communication (with a concentration on Public Relations) from Western New England University (Massachusetts.). Prior to joining ZTPR, Ross worked at a leading home entertainment publicity agency on blockbuster titles including: The Walking Dead, The Iron Lady, the Spartacus franchise, and The King’s Speech.
