At 21, he came within three seconds of drowning. At 27, he saw an angel (really!). About an hour ago he had a cappuccino at his favorite cafe.

A long-time student of peace ambassador Prem Rawat, Mitch is grateful, full of life, and understands how to help forward-thinking people open up the floodgates of their creative potential. Bats left, throws left.
