Randy Thysse

The Making of a Spy Catcher

When Randy Thysse '85 was growing up in the Minne­apolis working-class sub­urb of Brooklyn Center, it was suggested that he learn a trade, like neighbors who were plumb­ers or glaziers, or maybe he could follow in his dad’s footsteps and learn carpet laying.The trade he settled into, and which he never once considered while growing up, is sometimes called spycraft.
