He has 3 siblings, an older brother and a younger sister and brother. Randy is also a father and a husband and proud father to a beautiful son. At times people mistake him for being an asshole but he’s not. He just lives in his own world so he tends to be distant. He is fascinated by the arts, painting, drawing music, poetry, books etc. He also writes poetry. That’s actually how he fell into writing. He would write on any and everything he could write on putting his thoughts down. One day a friend gave him the idea to write a book and he took his advice and wrote his first novel. R.I.S.E. (Royal Intension, Secret Emotions.) His favorite author is Eric Jerome Dickey. He like his style of writing and he plans to one day get into that style of writing in hopes that it will open up more lanes for up and coming authors, as well as for himself. Randy is a down to earth dude who is trying to better himself day to day with the abilities he possesses to accomplish the very things he desires in life.
