James Carr knew he wanted to be a writer when he joined the newspaper staff at Milton High School. Since then, he hosted several radio shows while attending the University of Georgia, worked for FOX Sports, The Shadow League, Appen Newspapers and recently spent a year in New York City working for a nonprofit called Move This World. While working two jobs, he found the time to pursue his passion and write a independently published book about sustainable agriculture in Georgia, and is working on a documentary and an album to compliment the book. We are thrilled to welcome him to Georgia Organics and can’t wait for you all to meet him as well. But first, we had to ask him the hard questions we pose to all new employees:
What was your previous job? US Program Coordinator at Move This World, a global nonprofit that harnesses the power of creativity to build trust, reduce fear and inspire change within communities.
Who/what inspired you to do the work you are doing for Georgia Organics? It would be nearly impossible to list all of the inspiration that went into my passion for sustainable, organic farming. But for starters, it runs in my family, as does writing and communication, and I am thrilled to put my abilities to work for such an important cause.
What do you want to accomplish for Georgia’s farmers? I want Georgia Farmers to receive the credit and support they deserve as the backbone of our society.
If you became a DJ, what would your DJ name be? DJ Green Tea
