I am the Chief Technology Officer at a company called, PolicyCheck, Inc. We built an application called AnnuityCheck that works to help advisors help retirees have more money in retirement. The application as been a huge success, and that is where I spend most of my time.
My background is as a programmer, I graduated from Northern Arizona Uni, and have spent my life working with or around computers. My first ‘real’ job out of college was working with the International Rescue Committee. I managed a database called Efforts to Outcomes, it was designed specifically for non profits. After that I did some freelance work, helping a doctor with a behavioral program, and a small manufacturer with creating a seriously better tracking system for their products.
Finally while hanging out with a friend, her father asked me about helping him solve a problem that required technical skills. The solution to the problem started this entire journey to creating the software that I mentioned at the beginning of all this, AnnuityCheck.
