Bio

Mitch is a composer, photographer and tour guide based in Manhattan.

He has master’s degrees in music composition, piano, and the social sciences from the Université de Paris – Sorbonne and the Paris Conservatoire. He has done additional studies in London, Berlin, Wellington (New Zealand) and Sydney.

Mitch composed and produced a wonderfully pretentious opera at age 19 in New Zealand, and has since had his orchestral, chamber, choral and liturgical compositions performed in England, France, Italy, Germany, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and the United States.

As a photographer Mitch travels extensively; his portrait and travel photos can be found in a wide variety of places--from magazines such as Scientific American and Publisher's Weekly to the Sydney Morning Herald or book jackets for Macmillan Publishing. He has photographed weddings from Paris to Vancouver, with stops in places like Kansas and of course his hometown of Manhattan. His photography-specific website can be found here.

Originally trained in philosophy and psychology, Mitch has published work on German and French phenomenology–specializing in theories of truth in American Pragmatism and early existentialism.

Mitch is currently interested in the intersection of neuroscience, religion, and epistemology, and is currently completing a book of essays appearing in 2016.
