A note to recruiters: I get a lot of email from recruiters, so I'm trying the experiment of putting a note at the top of my resume to see what happens. I'm only interested in full-time, permanent positions in NYC or fully remote. I want to write exclusively free and open source software, meaning that I could put pretty much every line of code I write on GitHub. And I want to work on something interesting and cool.
