Assistant Office Manager
Randy King was born and raised just outside Iowa City, Iowa where he attended the University of Iowa. He recently retired from a career as a fine wine buyer, fine wine retailer and consultant. Randy and his husband moved to Provincetown in the spring of 2017, and spent the next three summers here and traveled to other places during the winter months.
