Patrick Ross

Senior Director

When one of Patrick Ross’s plays debuted at the Edinburgh Fringe, The Scotsman described his script as “thoughtful” and “immersive.” Now he helps executives, entertainers, and public figures tell thoughtful, immersive stories of their own.

At West Wing Writers, Patrick’s work has appeared in bestselling books, the pages of The New York Times, and product launches streamed for audiences of millions. He’s written jokes for pundits and politicians at events like the Gridiron Club Dinner and Shakespeare Theatre Company’s annual “Will on the Hill.”

During the 2018 midterm cycle, Patrick joined Rising Tide Interactive, where he wrote digital content for senators, governors, and other candidates in some of the tightest races in the country. Previously, he worked as the in-house writer at the Wilma Theater in his former home of Philadelphia.

Patrick graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Swarthmore College with degrees in theater and English literature. His classmates elected him to deliver the student commencement speech, which he did largely in the style of Dr. Seuss.

Patrick grew up in Rutherford, New Jersey. A citizen of Ireland, he now lives in Washington, DC.
