“My Mother was a pioneering photojournalist in the sixties.” as Randy tells it. “One of the first women to sit on press association boards, breaking into new areas of media, she was published internationally in United Press International, Time-Life, and the Los Angeles Times.” Accompanying her on assignments Randy learned early on the importance of the media in conveying the brilliance he is able to see in people, products and ideas.
“I succeed in helping others to be successful… by finding the authentic core of their message or idea, and then giving voice to it, empowering it” says Randy. “Bringing clarity to a fragmented and cluttered media landscape, we make sure the message gets through.”
