Short Bio:

Dr. Mitchell was born in Connecticut where he met his beautiful and stylish wife Christina.  They have been married for 23 years!  The couple relocated to Bradford, PA in 2015 where they currently reside with their two dogs, Betty-Boop and Duke and their two daughters Hannah and Charlotte.  They also have a spiritually adopted daughter Clementine and her nine year old son, Elliot.

When he is not teaching, Dr. Mitchell enjoys creating art which he began producing in quantities by the age of six.  He participated in the CREST (Creative Resources Enriching Student Talents) program, a creative arts model for gifted elementary school students which offers courses in the visual and performing arts using community resources and artists to broaden and enrich children's creativity through general exploratory activities, group training activities, and individual and small group projects and performances.  Several of his pictures were published in a limited edition book (300 Copies) entitled “Metamorphoses of the C.R.E.S.T. artists and poets” in 1982.  During middle school and in high school, he completed most of the art courses offered by the end of ninth grade.  In college, he minored in Studio Art with a focus on the use of color and printmaking techniques under the instruction of Professor Imna Arroyo at Eastern Connecticut State University.  He sold his first print to the permanent collection of the Akus Gallery at Eastern during his senior year of college.
