Hi, I'm Mitch

Hey, I’m Mitchell, but you can call me Mitch.

I have been part of ALIVE for about two months now, and I’m loving every moment of it. I’m one of the interns, and I have been helping with social media promotion and assisting the ALIVE Team Coordinators. I have really enjoyed being a member of the ALIVE team and have felt extremely welcomed.

I was born and raised right down the road in Bristol, VA. I have a great family, who are my number one supporters and are extremely important to me. I was a Virginia High Bearcat where I was a theater nerd (don’t judge; it was fun). Now, I’m a Milligan Buffalo, studying business management and photography, and will be graduating in just a few months.

I have an unreasonable love for music. Almost anytime you find me, I will have some kind of music playing. I’m not picky about the type of music; I can literally find something that I like in every genre. I just like to jam.

If you really want to see me get out of my shell, take a ride with me and let me control the music.

I like to think of my car not only as a means of transportation but also as a stage to perform. It's where I can let go of everything and release my inner rock star.

Also, I really like photography and graphic design. I started doing photography about five years ago when I was in high school. My dad had just gotten some new camera equipment and after watching him use it, I really wanted to try it out for myself. I really enjoy sports and live music photography, but my favorite is portraiture. I like when you can look at a photo and can tell something about the subject’s personality. Photography has has helped me to see more of the beauty and uniqueness in people. Everyone has eyes, a nose, and mouth, but no two look exactly alike. It also shows how creative God is; he can create so many people, but everyone is still so different. Graphic design is something that I started about the same time as photography. I really like the challenge of starting with a blank page, and having to make something that looks good and conveys a message.

I love working together as a team to achieve goals. Recently, I spent a semester in Nashville learning the ins and outs of the music industry. My favorite part of this whole experience was being the tour manager of our week long tour. This was one of the most demanding, but most fun opportunities I have ever had. We ran into quite a few bumps along the way, but every night of the tour, no matter how rough the day had been, the best part for me was looking at the show and thinking, “We did this.” Not just one person, but it took our entire group to put it all together and make it successful.

I'm an introvert at heart, and most people find me quiet. But I promise, once you get me going...

I will not be able to stop. You have been warned.

I really love being around great people and getting to know them. So if you see me, say hello and let’s talk! I am really excited to be here, and I can not wait to see what God has in store for the next few months.
