Todd loved computers and technology from a young age, and was always finding new and innovative ways to solve problems. For the past 8 years, he has been running his own software consulting company, while working an outside full-time job. With his background in data, there are many ways that his skills can be put to good use for the residents of Ankeny.
When he saw the need for a better solution for vaccine appointments in Iowa, he jumped at the chance. The Vaccine Hunter site was built, and he worked with several county public health organizations to make sure their data was displayed on the site accurately and in a timely manner. Todd created a more efficient way to make vaccine appointments for all Iowans, and he hopes to continue to improve state efforts done in the Iowa Senate.
