After growing up on a midwestern farm, Rick set out on a path that would trace most of historic Route 66, stopping in Albuquerque before settling in California. He met his wife, Hatsumi, at Stanford University, and has worked in telecom software development for over 20 years The addition of their son Joshua to the household has been a great joy and blessing. As an instrument-rated pilot, Rick also enjoys sharing with friends the experience of flight and its unique perspective on God’s creation.
He notes, “It has been rather obvious that at each station of my life, wherever I’ve gone, God was already there and preparing things for my good before I was aware of it. I don’t doubt that he will continue to work that way for me and for all his people.”
