Ross Hollebon is a collector, consumer, fan, and cheerleader of all things Star Wars—okay, and on rare occasions a critic—who looks for different opportunities to get involved with the community at large.
Born in the mid-70s in Maryland (just outside of Washington, D.C.), he lived a generally spoiled childhood (thanks, mom and dad) having an army of Kenner action figures, ships, and playsets, and remembers seeing “The Empire Strikes Back” and “The Return of The Jedi” in theaters.
Ross’ connection to the Force ebbed-and-flowed throughout high school and college—but his interest in communication, film, and storytelling can always be traced back to George Lucas’ incarnations of Joseph’s Campbell’s Hero’s Journey.
After college he waited in line for midnight and 3am showings of the re-released original trilogy films and the prequel trilogy and couldn’t have been more excited when the sequel trilogy was announced and after seeing “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” An avid reader, the expanding canon library of books and comics keeps him busy trying to keep up with all of his favorite storytellers.
He was a crew member for ReedPop at Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019—where he worked with Clair Henry to keep some semblance of order at the Podcast Stage, among other duties to help other Star Wars fans have an amazing experience.
Ross is a paying member and supporter of Rancho Obi-Wan and the Coffee WIth Kenobi podcast, where he has made a couple guest appearances. He also contributed numerous features and reviews to Tatooine Times—including spearheading, as part of a group effort, the Women of the Galaxy Week—prior to getting more involved with Fantha Tracks.
He currently lives in Indianapolis—after moving around between California, Minnesota, Virginia, Maryland and Ohio for previous jobs in professional sports. Ross is working on his second master’s degree (public relations) after earning an MA in integrated design and even had the opportunity to create a break down video of the PR Ethics of the characters and situations in Claudia Gray’s “Bloodline” novel.
