A day in the life of Kyle Nelson, one of the three original members of Soul id, begins in the early hours of the morning between 5 a.m and 6 a.m. with a cup of coffee. Depending on the day, Kyle might go for an early morning mountain bike ride or just chill on his front porch and watch the sun come up as he enjoys his coffee and catches up on the morning news.
As soon as the caffeine has kicked in, Kyle checks his daily calendar and gets right to work. As the Marketing Director At Soul id, he usually has at least one meeting with either a marketing or public relations rep. or the team at the Soul id office located in downtown Chico. Kyle is always willing to help with anything going on at Soul id and gladly helps mentor anyone who needs it.
At the end of his day, Kyle spends time with his wife Crystal as they prepare to have a baby boy due this coming October!
Soul id: What is your goal for Soul id as one of the original founding members?
Kyle Nelson: I think the ultimate goal for Soul id is to connect as many athletes, photographers and enthusiasts as possible and be able to deliver them epic content on a daily basis.
Soul id: Where are you from originally and why do you live in Chico?
Kyle Nelson: I hail from the town of Middletown, California. It’s a very small country town north of the Napa Valley. One of those communities where everyone knows everyone with only a few stoplights in the entire town. I graduated from Chico State in 2012 and have called Chico my home ever since.
Soul id: Why are you a part of the Soul id team?
Kyle Nelson: I’m a part of Soul id because being a part of such an amazing company built by a team that truly has a passion for connecting athletes and individuals that love action sports is such an awesome experience.
