   Born and raised in Texas, Mitchell got his start in Sound Design where he attended Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas. There he was given opportunities to design sound on multiple productions such as Urinetown, Buried Child, and This is Not a Pipe Dream.
 
   While Mitchell was in undergrad he was also lucky to work with great companies like, The Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival, The Palace Theater, and The Hangar Theater. At The Hangar Theater, Mitchell was the Sound Design intern and was able to design the plays: Kill to Eat, An Idiot and In a Word. He was able to do all these sound designs alongside five different childrens' theatre pieces. 
   After graduating from Southwestern University, Mitchell chose to achieve a terminal graduate degree at The California Institute of the Arts in Santa Clarita, California.  While achieving his masters degree, Mitchell had the privilege of designing the stage productions of A Splendid Death and The Tempest.  He designed these shows on top of being the head sound designer for numerous animation projects and short films along with being a voice recording engineer.
 
   Mitchell worked briefly for Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios, Los Angeles before moving to Chicago, Illinois. While in Chicago, Mitchell worked on the production of the midwest premiere of From White Plains with the Broken Nose Theatre Company. Not to mention being able to work with the Lucky Plush Production company on their premiere of The Queue.  Mitchell then moved back to warm sunny southern California to be the production manager for the Los Angeles SummerFest in Rivendale in 2014, where he had the pleasure to work every summer between 2011 to 2014. Along with that, he became the sound board operator at the Audrey Skirball Kenis Theatre at the Geffen Playhouse in Westwood, California. ​

Mitchell has been lucky enough to work for excellent companies across Los Angeles, including 4Wall Lighting and Entertainment and Avysis Inc. at Amazon Studios 

 

In 2017, Mitchell started to self educate in developing mobile applications.
