The New Guy

Hello everyone, I just thought I’d introduce myself a neophyte to Metblogs. My name is Tom, I currently reside along North Cass in Midtown. I’ve got a beautiful view of the skyline out my window and am pretty pleased with my digs. I grew up in the northern suburb of Troy (and spent my time working for Rand McNally in the Somerset Collection). After spending the last five years out in East Lansing (at MSU), I returned to Detroit back in February. I currently work as a web applications developer/systems administrator out in Livonia (can you say NO rush-hour traffic!)

I’m still slightly mixed about whether I’d prefer to live here, in midtown, or elsewhere in the Metro area. Both have their pros and cons, but it’s really nice living within walking distance of the Tastefest, the Art Festival, and the other events that go on down here. Things I like about (metro) Detroit? Eastern Market, Ed Love, the Tigers, cheap draft beers,giant industrial complexes, and much more. Things I dislike about (metro) Detroit? Racism, taxes, and auto insurance premiums.

    I hate those auto insurance premiums as well! I live in north of Nine Mile and I still get hit with the high premiums Detroit residence see!
