After a 20 year IT career working with major PNW tech companies such as Boeing, Expedia, Microsoft, and Nintendo, Richard and his wife Devon quit their corporate jobs, moved aboard their Jeanneau 45 Mobert with their kids and set off on an 18 month sailing adventure taking them from Seattle to the Glaciers of SE Alaska and then down through Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Costa Rica. Along the way Richard took over Sea-Tech Systems from its retiring founder and operated the business remotely from the boat for the first year. Richard and Devon combine their extensive IT and legal backgrounds with ongoing cruising and business ownership experience to help cruisers of all kinds get onboard and abroad while remaining connected to the things on land they need or want, whether family, weather forecasts, or business operations.
