Randy Kohn

CEO & Founder

Randy's charisma is as spirited as his aerial skills! Paired with a flashy and friendly smile that puts even the most terrified of flyers at ease, he makes you instantly feel like part of the gang here at the Rig.

Flying since the age of 12 at the French Woods Festival Circus Camp, he later went on to become lead instructor at all three prestigious New York Aerial Arts schools and taught alongside some of Trapeze’s most notable performing aerial legends. He’s performed professionally with the award-winning, Flying Royals, The High Flying Pages and The Flying Farfans, where he achieved the ultimate feat in trapeze - catching the triple somersault! 

Fun Fact: Randy’s skills even landed him a feature in Tom Moore’s landmark flying film “The Flight Fantastic”.

Randy’s energy expands beyond the skies. This business savvy entrepreneur has become a Real-estate powerhouse, has successfully helped scale multiple Tech companies, and of course, helped construct Santa Barbara Trapeze Company - a place where Randy’s dreams and talents have a place to soar.

Combining his love of leadership and lineage, he’s passing on what he has learned and created which is a cultural mix of athletic practitioners and multi-layered individuals from all walks of life. Randy is far from “hanging up his tights” despite his successes as a “tech bro”. Look for him overhead when you come to fly at SBTC.
