Ross Hardy

Programmer, artist

I'm a 31-year-old developer and artist living in Columbus, Ohio. This site is a place for me to share my professional work experience and artwork.

Career Summary

I am a primarily Java and web programmer with 7 years of experience working on Agile development teams at Nationwide Insurance. For five of those years I have acted in the lead developer role on several teams.

Most recently I led development on the website for the Nationwide Bank Loan platform. This system was the first in the industry to offer instant preapproval, car shop and purchase, and final loan approval all at once online.

Communication, Test-Driven Development, presentation skills, and applying Agile principles are strengths of mine. I enjoy learning new and better ways of solving technical problems with different languages, tools, and frameworks.


I enjoy taking photos and drawing cartoons and illustrations traditionally and digitally. For several years I was an active comic book illustrator with the PANEL indie comic book collective. I have an art studio at 400 West Rich in Franklinton.


I make my music on the amazing Teenage Engineering OP-1.
