Michael grew up in the northeast Georgia town of Lavonia, Ga. He graduated from Franklin County High School, Carnesville, Ga in 1971. Afterwards he attended the Georgia Institute of Technology where he earned his professional architect degree, a Bachelor of Architecture in 1976.
After working with various architecture firms upon graduation, Michael and Alex S. Paulson founded Randall-Paulson Architects, Inc. in 1983. Since that time Randall-Paulson Architects, Inc. has become a nationally recognized firm providing architectural, interior design and visualization design services across the country.
Professionally Michael was a member and active in various professional organizations dedicated to the design, construction and development industries. He also devoted time to civic organizations serving as a long time board member of the Spruill Center of the Arts, Dunwoody, Ga., and the Murphey Candler Little League, Brookhaven, Ga.
What gave Michael his greatest joy was coaching and supporting his three sons in whatever activity of sports they chose to participate in. Highlights included traveling the southeast with his youngest son Hunter participating in sanction bowling tournaments. Hunter taught Michael the intricacies of the sport, eg: the type of material for balls to use and learning the oil patterns on the lanes, etc. Another big highlight was when his two older sons, Hayden and Hudson played together on the Dunwoody High School baseball team and won the State Championship in 2007. Michael enjoyed coaching and following his middle son Hudson at the University of Florida and later drafted by the Detroit Tigers. Hudson is now a general contractor for The Conlan Company. Hayden continued his sports interest by becoming involved with turf management, Sports Turf and Dirt, located in Dunwoody, Ga.
