       Mitch has taken a road-less-traveled to become a songwriter. While surrounded by music all his life as his father was a band singer for many years, Mitch never pursued it. Instead, he went on to complete several degrees and accumulated a wide range of life experiences as a university professor, and author of numerus published books and articles. He worked as an intercultural relations consultant, a hostage negotiator, and an advisor to international kidnappings as well as raising a family and starting several small businesses with his spouse.


      In 2014 he dusted off some lyrics he had written earlier and joined Global Songwriters Connection to learn more about songwriting. He began writing in the Country Pop genre and has continued to grow as a songwriter by attending numerous songwriting events in Nashville. 


      He has been fortunate to work with top writers, such as Victoria Banks, Brian White, Kessy Timmer, Steve Dean and Artist/Songwriters such as Clayton Jones, Jeffery East and Lo Lind.


    Mitch lives in the Washington D.C. Metro area in Maryland and he continues to connect with cowriters and friends in Nashville.
