Google's #AutoAwesome is always fun to see what they come up with.

Story
Tagline
Dad, husband, home cook, music nerd, tech geek. Senior Director of Content and Engagement for Salesforce.
Introduction
I'm a dad and husband, a home cook, a music nerd and tech geek and a marketing and social media professional. 


I'm Senior Director of Content and Engagement for Salesforce. I lead four amazing teams driving our efforts to engage with, inform and learn from our customers and communities.

I love speaking to groups large and small about how enterprise companies are successfully integrating social media across the organization.

I started my career in 1989 as a reporter and photographer for The Chapel Hill News in Chapel Hill, N.C. Since then I've worked in marketing communications for a variety of companies and clients, mostly in technology.

I came to Radian6 (now Salesforce Marketing Cloud) from New Marketing Labs, where I served as Executive Director and oversaw client services, as well as the development of new product and service offerings for enterprise customers. Before NML I was Social Media Manager for SAS, the business analytics software company. I directed the company's global social media strategy, policy and training.

Before that, I worked for Yep Roc, a leading independent record label, where I directed web and social media marketing and launched the web store. I've been actively involved in social media since 1994 when I joined my first Internet forum, and began blogging in 2002 when I wrote the daily update for the Iceland Airwaves music festival.

My first job at SAS was in the Corporate Public Relations group, where I assisted journalists who wanted to learn more about SAS' work/life balance, award-winning employee benefits and sustainability activities. I also oversaw the Fortune 100 Best Companies award application process.

I was born in New Jersey, grew up in North Carolina and graduated from Guilford College in Greensboro with a degree in English. You can find all of my online presences at dbthomas.com.

Very positive experience across the board. Dr. Chow is very enthusiastic, friendly and informative. The 3D retinal scan is fascinating and did more to help me understand the health of my eye than any previous visit to an eye doctor. Eric was also very helpful in selecting frames and working with my insurance.

If you like authentic Mexican food, like the kind people actually eat in Mexico, this is a great place. They have a full menu with lunch specials (the ubiquitous Speedy Gonzales, for instance) and all the usual stuff like burritos, enchiladas and hard shell tacos, but they also have tortas, Mexican-style tacos on fresh corn tortillas with a variety of fillings, pupusas and more. A little light on atmosphere but great food at a great value.
