Ross Minichiello came to New York as an actor/director in 1990 but found waiting tables to be much more lucrative. In 1996, while directing the OOBR award winning comedy, Donkeybar, he met his lovely, future wife, Mary. And in 2003 he became a dad to Max. He has workshopped fiction with Thad Rutkowski at the Writer’s Voice for the last few years. Outside of fiction Ross has written a screenplay, several 10 minute plays, some corporate stuff and a comedy/cooking show, Chow, Baby! Chow! He has read his work in a few downtown watering holes and cafes but has always stopped just shy of management asking him to leave. He is currently working on something longer than 10 pages.
