I am very pleased to announce that I've joined the wonderful folks over at Tyson Foods, Inc. as a manager on the corporate social media team. Tyson is a well-known and respected food company that has a huge heart when it comes to humanitarian aid in the form of hunger relief (see TysonHungerRelief.com blog started in 2007 by Ed Nicholson) . Cool peeps on our corporate social business team which I am honored to work with include: Ed Nicholson, Jack Pate, and Kyle Gibson.
As part of this career change, I've relocated up to the NW region of Arkansas as I now work at Tyson's corporate headquarters. The NWA area is a nature-lovers dream come true... truly a hidden gem! If you love hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, fly fishing, rock climbing and nature walks, then you definitely need to check it out.
I live in the city of Fayetteville, right next to the Fayetteville Lake, which has tons of paved and dirt nature trails... so awesome! Lots of great things to see and do here! Fayetteville reminds me a bit of Austin as they have a local slogan here, "Keep Fayetteville Funky" that is very similar to Austin's, "Keep Austin Weird." These should become Sister cities, right?!
Over time I will be sharing more news and incredible pics like the one above (only 5 minutes from our new house!)
