Hey, my name is Trey Conway. I am 24 years old, and I grew up in the “peak of good living” Apex, North Carolina. I have always loved the outdoors. Anything that involves hiking with my dog Rusty, rock-climbing, or fishing is where I find my happiness. After reading the book “On The Road” by Jack Kerouac, my love for traveling the United States took on a whole new meaning, thus sending me on a cross country tour with my dog for 2 years.
Upon returning home with many great experiences, (and penniless) it was evident to me that I needed to grow up and head off to college. Growing up in a tech savvy household, my father had always taught me the benefits of being an “egg head.” With that in mind, I enrolled in a few computer classes at Appalachian State University. During one of my business calculus classes, we had discussed how the downfall of Freddie and Fannie had such a devastating impact on our economy. I had a hard time understanding the mortgage concepts being discussed.
Being a visual learner, I was able to use my computer science skills to create something that “showed” these concepts. I hope this website can become a useful tool to others who perceived mortgages the way I used to, and help them better understand these ideas. Please let me know what you think!
