Tell us a bit about yourself. 

I am originally from Alabama and I moved to Charlotte 2 years ago. I used to work for Carnival Cruise Line as an entertainer but due to the coronavirus, they’re currently closed. In my free time, I hang out with friends and sing for two bands.

How has it been working on Upshift?

Upshift has been great! Being an entertainer I have a busy and unique schedule so it is nice that I don’t have to commit to anything. I enjoy working for iTek Graphics because it’s a laid back and relaxed environment. However, I am currently working with Frieling USA. They are great about making sure I know what I am doing and that I feel comfortable.

What do you like most about Upshift?

I like that I have a choice of where I want to work and what I want to do. I have also gained a lot of valuable skills from working at different companies.
