I'm a web developer, beer and coffee snob, and Michigander living in Seattle. I like sensible functionality (content first ♥), progressive enhancement, and responsive everything. This site is hosted on GitHub Pages (Git is my CMS, what!). You can also find me on Twitter, Instagram, GitHub, and LinkedIn, among others. (Check out my resume, too.)
There’s a new advantage to doing business in New York. A big one. START-UP NY, Governor Cuomo’s groundbreaking initiative, is transforming communities across the state into tax-free sites for new and expanding businesses. Now, businesses can operate 100% tax-free for 10 years. No income tax, business, corporate, state or local taxes, sales and property taxes, or franchise fees.
No taxes for ten years, eh?

Even though I don’t like these “be a better programmer” posts, I want to outline some of my thoughts from that time.
