In 2011, upon his return from a year-long battle with stage 4 cancer (which he won), Randy made some big decisions.

The first was to pivot our design firm towards a Done-With-You approach. No more retainers. No more hiding the secret sauce from clients. Just more success, born of collaboration and a mission to empower each other. That decision led to renaming us Kayak Marketing, founded in his love of paddling.

Randy wears his heart on his sleeve. When he's happy, you know it. And when he's not, you'll know it too. Thanks to him, there's no smoke or mirrors at Kayak. No pageantry of pitches. No creating 20 different versions of a thing and attempting to sell you one of them (while charging you for all 20), either. And no checking tasks off a list and claiming it was a good job.

At Kayak, Randy leads our mission to put you in a position to do more for yourself. By that, we mean collaboration, education, and goals achieved. Not tasks. At every turn, we give you advice based on what's best for you. Regardless of what it might mean to our revenue.

Randy's taught us to solve for the client, every time. Something that's rooted in his lived experience.

Ask him about it someday over a hot coffee or a cold glass of stout. You'll be glad you did.
