Creativity has always been Randall Coleman's hallmark. Growing up in Michigan, exploring the shores of Lake Michigan and Muskegon Lake, the Tom Sawyer-like childhood triggered his wonder of life at an early age. He began to draw and paint before he could write his name. He was a natural leader in high school and in college, where he was elected student government president. But instead of pursuing a college degree, he opted for a year at a Zen center in Southern California.
He started a professional creative career in the early 70's in Toronto with Rogers Cable TV, now the largest telecommunications company in Canada. Then, what was called cable TV, became his professional creative palette. There, he pioneered local cable TV programs. He created the first music VJ format and cable's first music videos, well before MTV, when he produced the award winning show, "You Can't Do That On Television." Continuing as a creative music video producer and cable TV maverick, he pioneered digital effects in music videos and national Cable TV satellite feeds with stereo sound.
In 2004, he survived the Boxing Day tsunami by kicking out a window and clinging to the roof of his home in Kamala, Phuket, Thailand.See more works by Randall Coleman
