Ross Akselrad


Ross is the Owner/President of Serendipity Studios and has been in the special event business for over 20 years. From the time that Ross was 16 years old, Ross knew he was destined to be a part of people’s most special moments. At that same age, he opened Pulse Entertainment and has grown it to be the leading event entertainment company in the region. Not long after opening Pulse Entertainment, Ross saw that people were starting to have the need for a company that could provide all the services most commonly used at special events. So in 2003, he created Serendipity Studios.

Having attended over 10,000 special events, Ross already knew what special moments to capture; he just had to learn how to capture them. It was important for him to know all the ins and outs of the photography and video fields before offering those services to clients. Therefore, he began taking classes in photography and video production. After completing those classes, Ross can truly say that he is a jack of all trades and can perform personally any of the services he provides.

Ross has been trusted by countless celebrities for their event needs. Having worked with some of the biggest names in music, sports, and entertainment, Ross knows how to produce the very best for his celebrity clients. From Motown Legends The Temptations to the #1 All-Time selling female supergroup Salt N Pepa and teen heartthrob Justin Bieber, Ross Akselrad has provided the necessary services to either plan, produce, or capture their local events.
