Randolph Ross


Randy has been making crosswords for nearly twenty-five years, appearing frequently in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and a wide array of other puzzle outlets. When he is not constructing or solving, he is spending his time as a high school principal or rooting for the Yankees. In an interview on the NYT Wordplay blog, Randy talks about his philosophy of puzzling and some of his favorite constructions. Being unpredictable, using original themes, and playing with words are what he strives for in each of his puzzles. A recent favorite clue that anchored a themeless Saturday puzzle was "Subway line" (Answer: EAT FRESH). Overall he wants his puzzles to be educational and not taken too seriously ... they're only crosswords.
