The consulting and actuarial profession gives Christian the opportunity to use his problem solving skills to develop unique solutions to common problems. Christian is heavily involved in the programming and development aspects of Cheiron's interactive tools. These tools are extremely helpful in communicating complex actuarial issues in a way that is easily understood.
