Born and currently living in Oregon, Mitch married his wife Hailey in 2016, and they're expecting their first child in October.

Mitch is a self-trained mechanic who started his career at the age of 14 when he began working in a collision repair shop after school to pay for his kart racing.

Mitch first appeared in season 3 working on Todd Hoffman's crew and later joined Parker Schnabel's team in season 5.

Mitch's knowhow and ingenuity have kept Parker's washplants running, helping Parker achieve record gold totals.

Last year Mitch's role was put in jeopardy when he was seriously injured and broke his arm in a jet boating accident with Parker. Luckily, Mitch defied the odds and was back on site by the end of the season.

Mitch loves snowmobiling and anything involving speed, such as racing cars in California during the off-season.
