Shanthi, who is originally from San Diego, California, met Randall when she traveled to Costa Rica to study Spanish while attending Claremont McKenna College. Upon completing her B.A. she began focusing on marketing and web site design.

She and Randall founded the company together after coaches Randall knew began asking for their services to manage the logistics of their volleyball tours. Randall and Shanthi lived in Boulder, Colorado for five years before moving to Costa Rica in 2005. They have lived and worked in Costa Rica ever since and love it!
