Randy Ching

Randy is formally the President of Peer News/Civil Beat, but his real job is serving as the staff photographer for Civil Beat. Before Peer News, Randy spent eight years at eBay in a variety of leadership roles. Prior to eBay, Randy was a corporate attorney at Latham & Watkins and Cooley Godward.

Born and raised in Honolulu, Randy graduated from Punahou School. He received his undergraduate degree from Northwestern University and has a law degree from Northwestern University School of Law. In his free time, Randy enjoys being the personal photographer for his nieces and nephew. He can’t wait to take them backpacking and whitewater rafting someday soon.

Bears do not scare Randy, as long as he can run faster than his fellow backpackers.
