Founder and Executive Director
Mitch has spent the past fifteen years supporting the struggles of indigenous people across the Americas. In 2011, he moved to Ecuador’s northern Amazon to begin a clean water project with the indigenous communities living downriver from contaminating oil operations. Through building nearly 1000 water systems in over 50 indigenous villages, Mitch supported the creation of the Ceibo Alliance, an indigenous movement for land, life, and cultural survival in the western Amazon. Mitch has a 4 year old daughter, whose name in the Waorani language means “rainbow”.
