My self-summary
I'm Mitchell.

I'm an avid reader, total music junkie, audiophile, record collector, guitar, bass, and banjo player, Christian, engineer, coffee, beer, and whiskey enthusiast, cigar aficionado, Atlanta resident, Georgia Tech grad, foodie, concert goer, and church member.

I like to stay active and work out and run as regularly as my schedule permits, travel when I can, spend time out of doors, hike, find new restaurants, write music, record music, read more, learn more, and understand more concerning a variety of things, particularly my faith.
What I’m doing with my life
I finished grad school not too long ago, and now I'm RFIC design engineer at a startup. Currently I'm half of a two man operation, which makes for an unconventional job experience... It goes in cycles of working an embarrassingly high number of hours per week to being super laid back and having plenty of off time. Overall I'm really enjoying it.

I've got a few different musical projects going on in parallel right now, and I'm really excited to get back in the studio as soon as I move into one of the more chill cycles of my job.

Also, I'm single and looking?
I’m really good at
the instruments I play, my profession, listening to people, making mix cds, coming up with good places for dates, finding cool things to do in places I've never been, and opening up to people I don't really know.
The first things people usually notice about me
My animated facial expressions.

Six things I could never do without
God's grace.
Something to read.
Something to make music with.
My family.
Adequate sleep.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
It's all a blur.
On a typical Friday night I am
Porch sittin' while strumming old country songs is really my Friday night thing, but as my current apartment lacks a porch I usually find myself at a loss of what to do every time Friday rolls around. I'm more of a Saturday night goer-outer, but as a result of my current dilemma I might walk to a neighborhood bar with a friend or two.
You should message me if
You've read my profile, paused, and concluded that we would get along and enjoy each other's company. :-)
The two of us
