Mitch grew up in Fresno, CA, until age 18, when he moved to Tacoma, WA, where he attended the University of Puget Sound. He studied religion and archaeology, which took him to Israel for just under a year while he worked with the Antiquities Authority. Soon after, he moved to Spain to pursue language studies and he finally moved back to the United States in 2000.
While living in Orange County, CA, Mitch began his sales career and met the mother of his kids. After 7 years in Southern California, the mountains and quality of life in the PNW, where Mitch went to college, drew them to Portland, OR.
Mitch has been in Portland now for 14 years and he shares his life with his two beautiful children, Isla and Bennett and his incredible wife Lisa.
