Randy is the co-founder of Swype Inc. and Cleankeys Inc. He has pioneered specialized computing technologies for people with disabilities for more than two decades. In 2001, Randy originated the concept of Swype, a touch screen-based predictive text technology, which allows people to draw or swipe characters instead of typing on a graphical keyboard. He invented the Cleankeys® wipe-able computer keyboard – an easy-to-disinfect, button-less, touch- and tap-sensitive keyboard for dental offices, hospitals and other settings where infection control is a primary concern. In 2011, Randy was recognized with a Manning Innovation Award. He has a BS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Alberta.
