Meet Dustin

Yes, he may be part owner of this gig, but he's also our only male staffer.  He works harder than anyone I know, not only on behalf of the Upshift concept, but in every other aspect of his life.  He works 2-3 days a week at the boutique, in addition he does all the maintenance, IT support, and shipping for Upshift.  He does all of this on top of kicking ass at his full time job with the Madison School District.  Not only all that, this dude is funny, good looking, loves to drink beer, and has been known to run marathons.  There's nothing he can't do...except properly dress our mannequins, but even that has improved since his first day working the swap shop over 19 months ago*
