Following university study, a career shift to film music post production led him to Los Angeles where he worked for music products industry leader Avid M-Audio. During the brief stint as technical events specialist, surrounded by musical instruments and technology, fate ran its course and Randy was introduced to the theremin, which naturally bridged his passions for technology, problem solving and music.
