Randy Kohn
Mr Falcon Ribble, King Ninja Turtle

Randy is an entrepreneur, trapeze artist and overall renaissance man from New Jersey. He had his first sleep away camp experience shortly after his parents decided his high energy personality was too much for them to handle year round. It was at French Woods Camp where he was first introduced to the flying trapeze and he spent the next nine years as a camper and staff member. Randy’s time at French Woods set him up for a career in circus schools and flying trapeze. Randy grew up to literally run away and join the circus, and at 24 performed a triple somersault in front of a live audience, a rare feat that only few artists have accomplished. After returning home spent the last seven years working in sales and strategy at tech start-ups. He still runs away to visit trapeze schools any chance he gets.
