Ross completed his undergraduate studies at Stanford University in California, earning a Bachelor of Arts major in English, with minors in Psychology and Political Science. While at Stanford, Ross served as a White House Intern for President Clinton, where he worked under then-Cabinet Liaison Thurgood Marshall, Jr. At the White House, Ross worked on several major national and international issues, including the Kyoto Protocol on Climate Change as well as the President's Fast-Track Authority on Foreign Trade Agreements.
