Saddened and inspired by the death of children’s programming icon Mister Rogers, Randall left his successful career in public education to pursue his dream of developing print and multimedia to educate and entertain families. With the support of his family he employs his talents as a composer, puppet builder, writer, actor, singer/songwriter, and artist to realize this dream.
Whether he is performing, writing, composing, or developing original artwork or puppets, Randy is dedicated to producing material that supports and further expands the Nightstand Creations Inc.'s mission of developing properties that educate, inspire self-esteem and self-affirmation, and, of course, are fun.
In addition to his vast work with Nightstand Creations, Inc., Randy is also president and co-founder of Creating A Vision, Inc, a non-profit organization he co-founded with his brother, Michael, and their wives.
