Randy O. Cantú

Thinker & Marketing Creative, Chicago, IL


I'm a Texan who can teach you a thing or two about Tejano music, muscle cars, and fishing. When I'm not writing, you can find me cruising around in my '86 Chevy truck or at any good taco spot around town. I'm a self-proclaimed food critic who’s known for my hats, well-groomed beard, and stories you’ll never get tired of hearing.

I'm a senior creative with a successful and proven track record that has been beneficial to many Fortune 500 companies, such as Coca-Cola, Walmart, AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Samsung, Miller Lite, and McDonald’s. My work has earned me multiple awards in the General and Hispanic markets.
