Originally from Newport News, VA, I grew up with a loving family. I have one older brother, Scott, who currently lives in Germany, and both parents retired to Williamsburg, VA. At a very young age, my mother began exposing me to the arts, in particular, theatre. She would take me to the plays at the high school where both my Dad and she taught. As I got older, we started to go see touring musicals and plays that came through Chrysler Hall in Norfolk. Theatre was a magical experience for me from the very beginning.
I starred in my first play in 2nd Grade playing Professor Long Ears, in Professor Long Ears Saves The Day! I have always wanted to be an actor ever since. Singing came to me much later in life and started with Church Choir when I was 16. By 18, I finally tried out for my high school choir and ended up singing in the elite madrigal choir at the school. I decided to audition for Musical Theatre College programs and ended up at Ithaca College for Acting. While I enjoyed my year at Ithaca, it wasn't the right fit for me, so I transferred to Muhlenberg College in PA and graduated in 2001. I have been privileged enough to work all over the USA and internationally in regional and touring gigs, and made my Broadway debut in the revival of Jekyll & Hyde, directed by Jeff Calhoun, in the spring of 2013.
I love to perform and have been doing it for as long as I can remember. In between gigs, I run my own web design/graphics business mitchell media nyc which focuses primarily on websites for artists and small business.
I currently live in New York City with my lovely wife, Leah Jennings, and our two dogs, Ginger & Sadie.
