Career

Thom started his career with a spontaneous walk-in on the stereo mix session of American Graffiti. Thom introduced himself to Walter Murch, Ben Burtt, and Mark Berger. He simply stated, "Hi, I'm Randy. I've been working for a radio station in Berkeley, and I want to work in film sound."

It was at this point that Murch gave Thom a chance to sit in on a few mix sessions. He would go on to work his first sound job for Apocalypse Now. His second sound job would prove to be a strong turn in his career, as he assisted Ben Burtt in the Sound Effects Recording for The Empire Strikes Back.
