Randy Cassingham has a university degree in journalism, but he could never quite deal with the concept of intruding on people in disasters to ask, “How do you feel about this?” Nor could he ever keep a straight face when presented with outrageously silly situations that people tend to get themselves into that might make it into the “news.” So, not counting brief stings as a writer and photographer on his school paper (“It doesn’t count; it was a long time ago”), he has never been a reporter. Instead, he drove an ambulance in northern California (keeping a straight face most of the time, and since has been a search and rescue sheriff’s deputy, commercial photographer, writer, editor, publisher, software engineer, consultant, curmudgeon, and staff jester for various projects and companies. He is happily non-single and lives in Ridgway, Colorado. His personal website has more details.
