Kris joins the Signature crew with over 40 years of experience in the computer software industry including 15 as owner and CEO of a small software company here in Seattle. Kris' background has been primarily focused on the technical side, but as an owner, he's had extensive experience working with customers and prospects to understand their specific needs and building solutions to address them.

Kris started sailing at Center for Wooden Boats in Seattle 20 years ago and shortly thereafter joined a local fleet (Fleet 1) of San Juan 21's, a very popular small racer and cruiser built in the 70's and 80's in Kent, WA. He crews regularly with that fleet in local and regional events, and has been both Fleet 1 Captain and National Commodore for the San Juan 21 National Association. Having purchased a Beneteau 41.1 ("Cadenza") from Tori in 2018, Kris brings a unique perspective and enthusiasm to helping other sailors navigate the boat-buying process.
