Mitch grew up in a small town in rural Midwest Illinois that had a population of 3,300. After completing his undergraduate business degree in Information Management from Western Illinois University (Go Leathernecks!), he moved up to the northwest suburbs of Chicago where he worked for Apple as a Mac Genius for a few years before transferring to Arizona.
Mitch has since worked in the education and hospitality industries working in technology to create and refine business process and ensure data management practices are utilized. In 2013 he earned his Masters of Science degree in Information Management from the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University (Go Devils!).
Mitch has been calling Arizona “home” since 2008 and has lived and worked all over the valley and enjoys finding new restaurants from local chefs who have mastered their craft. If you are a lover of all things Chicago Food, you’ll be happy to know that Lou Malnati’s Pizza, Portillo’s Hot Dogs, Buddy Z’s Pizza, and Giordano’s Pizza have been expanding their locations in the valley! Chicago food aside, he enjoys attending as many baseball games as possible during Spring Training and the regular season.
