Mitch started at UF in 2012 as an ISOM major from Port Charlotte, FL, and over the course of his college career held leadership roles in the Freshman Leadership Council and the Florida Leadership Academy. He was also one of the founding members and the first president of GatorTech, an organization for students of all backgrounds who share an interest in technology. Mitch worked for Apple during his sophomore year as a technical adviser, and then joined GE Transportation his junior summer for an internship in Ft. Worth, TX. Upon graduating with a Masters in ISOM, Mitch joined GE full-time in their Digital Technology Leadership Program. Since then, he has done rotations in software development and automation, supply chain IT, field services IT, and cloud architecture. 

 

Outside of work, he loves to try new food around Chicago, geek out at Best Buy, and visit his girlfriend and family back in Florida. His FLA presentation is titled "Careers in IT: Behind the Scenes," in which he wants to share an honest picture of what it's like to work in IT, how technology impacts students of all majors, and offer some first-hand advice to students preparing for life after college.
