In 1998 Ross graduated from University of Waikato with a B. Computing and Mathematic Sciences (First Class Honours) and worked in ICT for 10 years. While in Canberra, Australia, during a 7-month working stint in the year 2000, Ross watched a series of powerful CMI videos which made the ‘lights go on’. He realised that he had not placed his trust on the whole of Scripture, especially Genesis as real history. Thus began an interest in the creation/evolution controversy. Having joined Creation Ministries International in 2008, Ross currently serves as CEO for CMI (NZ).
