About the Creator
Ross Martin (Book, Lyrics, & Music) started singing about the same time he started talking and added the guitar when it seemed his only option for impressing girls. He grew up doing community and school theater and choirs. When he realized that he cared more about the parody of The Music Man he wrote for his med school talent show than passing his medical boards, he knew something had to give. After delivering babies for a few years, he flipped his career to consulting in health IT to make more room for writing, eventually penning five screenplays and fourish musicals (depending on how you count). He briefly delivered babies, but now makes his living as an independent consultant in medical informatics (technology in healthcare) along with his wife as the dynamic duo behind 360 Degree Insights LLC. He also claims to be the World's Leading Medical Informatimusicologist as President and Founder of The American College of Medical Informatimusicology (ACMImimi).
