Uncommon Personalities: Meet Randy Clinton

Randy Clinton – UncommonGoods Data Analyst, Analytics Team

My hometown…
Livonia, Michigan

I’m inspired by…
Stories of people succeeding through hard work: Louis CK changing his entire act, Bill Gates poking at a computer over the summer as a middle school student, Dennis Rodman running for an hour on a treadmill after games and any other example of people working hard.

I would like someone (maybe me) to invent…
An earpiece that translates a language into your ear in real time. It’d open global travel to a completely different experience for people who don’t have the time to learn a new language before visiting a new place and change the relationship between medical and humanitarian mission personnel and the people being helped.

If I could meet anyone, living or not, I would choose…
Thomas Jefferson. I’d want to know when he thought the revolution would be won and what he expected the country to look like. Then I’d give him an update on how things have been going for the past 200 years and see where the conversation went from there.

When I’m not working, I’m probably…
Walking around someplace new and taking photos or trying to learn something.

The most amazing thing I’ve ever seen is…
The night sky with a full moon and dotted with stars far away from any Earthly light source that would pollute the sky. The moon was so bright it cast shadows on the ground.

If I won the lottery, I’d…
Commission the building of a time machine/sports car, go into the future, buy a sports almanac, travel back in time, and hand it to my old self. A sports almanac contains the scores and details about every game. Besides betting on just who wins, there’s a ton of smaller bets on things like number of points scored in the game, who scores first, etc…
It’d probably require a nuclear powered energy source but, in an effort to be environmentally friendly, I’d want to explore using garbage instead. I’ve seen this work before.
