Upshifter of the Week Tyrone C!


We are proud to announce that our Upshifter of the Week is Tyrone C from Nashville. 

Tyrone C.


Tell us a bit about yourself. 

I moved down to Nashville three years ago, thanks to a teaching job with Teach for America. Over the years, I have come to like the city quite a lot. An art, film, and book lover, I spend a good deal of my free time going to the Frist to see new exhibitions, or to the Belcourt to see a new film, or else to McKay’s to grab a new (if slightly used) book. I have also had the opportunity, since moving down to Nashville, to attend my first ever classical performance at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Given the beauty of the building, when I learned through a friend a year ago that I could work at the Symphony Center — via Upshift, of course — I jumped at the opportunity. Needless to say, I have been working with Upshift ever since.

How has it been working on Upshift?

My experience with Upshift has been great. It has proved to be a great way for me to meet new people and see new places in the city. Also, I’ve worked at many companies via Upshift, and I have noticed — no doubt because of Upshift’s reputation for providing quality workers — that the staff at each place were very nice to us Upshifters, treating us as members of the team rather than mere helping hands.

What do you like most about Upshift?

The flexibility is what I like most about Upshift. Some shifts are week-long gigs. However, there are plenty of non-recurring shifts that pop up now and then that I can manage to fit into my schedule. My only complaint: I wish I had heard about Upshift sooner.
