David J. Ross
Game Narrative Script Treatment Writer
As a child, David once went up on stage during a Lions Club performance by a particularly spirited, yet aging magician, allowing the man to place him inside a guillotine and make an artful display of dropping the blade.
He has been invincible ever since.
Though he currently writes for video games (and virtually any medium he puts his mind to), he has done many other things. Musical theatre. Supermarket night fill. Amateur alchemy. He was a corporate wolf, but hated it. He wrote a couple of novels. He sings, and plays guitar (though not terribly well).
He is a devoted partner, and father (In case either of them are reading).
He may try stand-up comedy again one day.
