Mitch has proved to be a passionate producer who knows how to get the best out of people by letting them do what they do best, all the while guiding the process and ultimately delivering a show that breaks new ground. I have worked with him on many occasions and look forward to any and all opportunities to collaborate in the future..

Audi
Audi relied on Mitch to execute the 2015 A3 e-tron sportback launch tour. Mitch did an absolutely fantastic job scouting locations that met our challenging balance of requirements, coordinating all parties involved (blending national transit plans, training, and customer facing experiences; not a simple task), and negotiating simply stunning contracts and favorable terms with venues and labor at every step of the way. Our tour would have crumbled without his guidance, unmatched people skills, and tenacity to simply get the job done. I'm personally and professionally very thankful for Mitch and his commendable work.

George P. Johnson
Since 2004, I have worked closely with Mitch on a variety of programs ranging from live fashion shows and concerts to television, original web content and complex experiential productions for top brands including Nokia, Ford, Microsoft, Lincoln and Audi. Mitch is a consummate professional with high integrity and the ability to instill confidence in stakeholders and a support team. He is highly creative and a strong contributor to program development; including anticipating risks or regulatory parameters as well as amplification and ways to over-perform against objective. Mitch also has a track record for flawless execution and delivering a project under budget, every time. Lastly, Mitch is a genuinely kind person able to connect with a range of personalities and harness collective strengths.
