“Turning Asgardia’s dreams into results.”
My name is Ross Cheeseright. I am 34 years old and I am an avid Asgardian. I have a background in analytics and I have worked for many years in the finance industry as an information analyst.
More recently, I went back to university to re-train and I am a second-year software engineering student with a passion is in the development and potential application of Virtual Reality.
I run a website design and digital marketing business (www.twobeardedguys.co.uk) and write a blog. I have been working hard for Asgardia for well over a year now and I have one singular aim in mind: Results
My Parliamentary Campaign
Some of you may remember me from my work towards joining Asgardia’s Parliament. At the time, I was one of the front-runners in the English District and I had aspirations to join Parliament and help to shape the nation.
Due to a decision by the head of the nation, it was deemed inappropriate for people under the age of 40 to run for Parliament. When this happened, I had around 1100 votes and it was not possible to transfer your votes to another candidate and there was no such thing as a government position.
I made the decision at the time to step down and free up my votes so that my supporters would be able to spend their vote on another candidate.
Running for Government
I have decided that it’s time to step up and re-join the race to help build a better Asgardia. I have seen that there are mounting concerns and a lack of suitable, eligible candidates.
I want, more than anything, for this project to be a huge success and if people believe in me, then I would ask for their support once again so that we can start to work to turn Asgardia’s dreams into a reality.
Ideally, I would be seeking to join the Ministry of information and communication. It’s always been a passion of mine to interface with Asgardian citizens and as I have demonstrated with my blog, I believe in creating an open and honest discourse with people and making sure that people are informed.
I have developed a wide range of skills that would benefit the ministry of information and communication over my career.
Early on in my working life I served as a Game Master for Blizzard entertainment. From this job I learnt what it is to represent a brand and be a spokesperson. I learned how to communicate fairly and accurately, while being able to convey the rules and policy.
Later in my career, I started working for a Finance company called Friend Life where I joined their Risk Claims team and produced analytical data from them and used data to produce reports to help inform management and make key decisions.
From there, I moved up to become an analyst where I worked with the business to create a wide range of reports and scrutinise databases for important information pertinent to the business.
Once Friends Life was bought out by a competitor, I decided to go back into education and started learning software engineering with an interest in developing Virtual reality.
Alongside my education, I launched my own business and for the past 3 years, I have been working to help set up and grow small businesses using a range of digital marketing techniques and website design.
All of this experience combined with my passion as an Asgardian positions me to take a leading role in developing robust systems for our nation to help us build bonds and remain informed and interconnected.
You will have seen me harping on about Virtual Reality and indeed, in my blog I have discussed the topic at some length.
It would be one of my principle goals to develop Virtual Reality to the great benefit of our nation. Initially, I would seek to create Virtual Spaces so that Asgardians can get together and hang out in, to chat, share ideas, discussions, watch media together and to create bonds.
Over time, I would seek to develop a Virtual Asgardia that could serve as the ‘heart’ of our nation, accessible from smartphones, computers and any capable device from anywhere in the world. Further to the basic uses of social VR it would also be possible to extend it to offer more advanced functionality such as virtual universities and virtual attractions.
Once Asgardia is further developed, I would seek to host the Virtual Asgardia on our own Asgardian Satellite, creating a truly ‘independent’ nation free from the interference or dependence of other nation’s internet superhighways.
My work in Asgardia
Nerdblog / Asgardia.space blog
I have been writing a blog for those that have an interest in the subject of Asgardia, it examines current events and proposes solutions to problems that we might face as a decentralised digital nation.
I have recently started to hire Asgardians as volunteers to help me expand the blog and curate more content. Furthermore, I have been an avid poster on my own personal blog on the Asgardia.space website and my blogs have been featured several times.
Until recently, I have been working as a part of the Civic Asgardia volunteer force where I worked in the communications team to create content, news reports and a periodic update on recent events and hot topics.
I spearheaded and proposed the topic of getting a Discord server set up for the nation and along with come colleagues ( chris , sven ) we were able to successfully launch a discord chat server for our nation that we handed over to Civic Asgardia to moderate and run.
I have been interviewed by several international newspapers regarding the subject of Asgardia as a subject matter expert and helped to provide balanced and positive information about our fledgeling nation.
I have created infographics, phone wallpapers, Facebook profile picture frames, fully sourced investigative reports and meeting writeups all for the free use and benefit of the Asgardian people.
Information and communication are key cornerstones of our nation and I think that the creation of content is the kindling for that area of our nation.
How can you support me?
Vote for me
The best way to support me is to vote for me. If you believe that I have skills that would serve Asgardia well, then show your support and give me your vote. When the time comes to look at building a government, if I am well supported by the community, then I’m going to be in a great position.
Help others find me and help me spread my message by sharing my profile with others. Let them know why you’ve voted for me and help them to connect with me. You can link them my campaign profile, or you can share one of my social media profiles with them.

I am incredibly driven and I’m ready to invest my time in Asgardia and I’m ready to work hard, but in order to do that I need funding.
I am looking to build a Patreon community that will both enable me to devote my time to further develop the nation, reach more people and grow my campaign.
Furthermore, if I am able to establish a solid income from the Patreon , I will ask my patreons to help me pick Asgardian projects to fund with some of the money.
If you’ve not got any spare time but you have some spare money or want to buy me a coffee, then please check out my Patreon .
