Best part of your job: The best part of my job is working with people – as no one is like another. I enjoy helping people of all ages discover their skills and develop as people. I also enjoy building strong community partnerships to maximize educational efforts, especially in the field of natural resource education for youth.

Something someone might be surprised to know about you: I was an exploration geologist who was privileged to work all over the lower forty-eight and in Alaska. My favorite ride to work – a helicopter.

Name: Tyler Hansen

Position: Marketing writer/public information representative, OSU Extended Campus

Hometown: Tucson, Ariz.

# of years at OSU: 1 year 3 months

Best part of your job: I get to work with countless interesting people across campus and around the world. My role puts me in touch with OSU distance students who often endure a great deal in order to earn an education, and they are a constant source of inspiration. Being able to help share their stories is a privilege.

Something someone might be surprised to know about you: I taught journalism at Tucson High School before moving to Oregon. On my first day as a teacher, a student came up to me and said, “Aren’t you in my brother’s chemistry class?”

Favorite book/movie/album: My favorite movie is “Good Will Hunting,” probably because it reminds me of my childhood when I was underappreciated for my unparalleled genius. That’s followed closely by “Do the Right Thing,” “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” and “Fletch.”
