My Christmas Letter 2016

Well, despite telling myself last year that I wasn’t going to move again in the winter, Annie and I moved again, but I’m getting ahead of myself… In January, I started a new job as Director of Technology at Fortrus Financial.

Higher Minimum Wage is Not the Answer

In a world where automated technology is quickly becoming a realistic replacement to people, a higher minimum wage may only quicken job loss in a system not ready to help those affected.
