Blayne Ross

Blayne Ross is a creative entrepreneur, experience designer and producer known for award winning experiences, environments and content that sparks meaningful connections.

He began his career in the entertainment industry in 2001 and quickly found a home working on the Emmy nominated HBO series Six Feet Under at the Greenblatt Janollari Studio. With a passion for complex stories that influence culture, Blayne became a Creative Executive in Original Programming for the Showtime Network, where he supervised "hit" series such as The L Word and Queer As Folk. He also helped develop the critically acclaimed, Peabody award winning political drama Brotherhood. Embracing his love of design and inspired physical environments, Blayne left Los Angeles for New York City to found a Design-Build shop, The Argyle Group. There, Blayne provided an end-to-end solution including architecture, interior design and construction services for clientele ranging from the Hamptons to Hawaii. Currently, Blayne is a partner in KGA Lifestyle, a luxury lifestyle property development company that offers turn key, furnished custom homes.

Seeking a way to blend all of his experience, passion and skills, Blayne decided it was time to go back to the beach. Coming to the Hudson River City Beach is New York’s first ever "pop-up" beach. A place to grab some rays and dig your toes in the sand, City Beach NYC will be designed by the New York creative community with a show documenting and sharing the diverse, collaborative and dynamic team behind the project. The aim of City Beach NYC is to give back, inspire others to build together, and have some fun along the way. And yes, it's BYOBB (Bring Your Own Beach Ball).

A triathlete, Blayne currently resides in New York City with a B.A in Advertising from the University of Florida and a Business Administration Concentration.
