Tell us a bit about yourself. 

Hi, I’m Jim and I’ve lived in Central Ohio for 13 years where I am raising my 3 kids. I work in sales and marketing and also enjoy spending time volunteering and traveling. Upshift is a great way to pick up some extra work when I’m not otherwise busy.

How has it been working on Upshift?

I joined Upshift just over a year ago and have thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful people that I’ve met along the way. At almost every event I run into someone I know in town which is a great way to stay social too.

What do you like most about Upshift?

What I like most about Upshift is the flexibility to pick and choose what venues and types of events I wish to work. Bartending is probably my favorite role, especially when a guest asks me to make them something tasty and I can tap into my creativity to make them a delicious cocktail.
