Annika Peacock


I'm Annika Peacock. I'm an AI solutions architect, and I help design sustainable, affordable, empathetic solutions to complex business problems, right here at home in the North State* (rural Northern California, for the flatlanders). I began using AI in the Navy as a cryptologist and Arabic translator. Years later, I used these skills to improve LLM performance at Quora and influence Google's SERP rankings.


In 2020 I moved to Chester, CA with my spouse Michael to spend more time in nature. We keep chickens, bees, koi, and a cat named Olivia. We collect local art. We hosted approximately 450 PCT hikers at our home in Chester during the 2023 season, and we look forward to hosting similar numbers this year. Professionally, I consult with local government, nonprofits, and small businesses to help improve revenue, save money, and serve customers better. I run several businesses of my own, using AI tools for automation and management.
