A Little About Me
When I was 6 years old, I sold painted rocks to our mailman. Since then, I have created small businesses and brands of my own. I have also helped other businesses (big and small) accomplish their goals. Goals including better User Experiences, User Interfaces, compelling videos and photos. I have built websites and smartphones apps that have been used by people all over their world. I am an all-around nice guy who lives in Nashville, TN with my wife, three daughters and a Boston Terrier named Lucy.
Mitchell Bat Co.
To most, baseball is entertainment. To others it's a business and to a very lucky few, it's a job. But at Mitchell Bat Co, baseball is an art—an American institution full of talent, beauty and history. No matter who you root for, baseball brings up big emotions. The sport gave me a way to find father figures I desperately needed as a kid growing up near Nashville, Tennessee, and these heritage-inspired bats—made of maple and painted by hand—have given me a way to give back to kids in search of the same things today. Display your Mitchell bat alongside your baseball memorabilia. Use it to send a hanging curveball into your neighbor’s backyard. Or let it do what it does best—be a smooth, stylish time machine that takes you back to memories of good games with great people. —Jeremy Mitchell, Mitchell Bat Co., est. 2013 A portion of all proceeds benefits MLB’s RBI program, which helps revive baseball in inner cities.

Deloitte Ticket System
Deloitte is a multinational professional services network. They are one of the "Big Four" accounting organizations and the largest professional services network in the world by revenue and number of professionals. They provide audit, tax, consulting, enterprise risk and financial advisory services with more than 286,200 professionals globally.
The Deloitte Ticket System is a way for Deloitte employees to easily have access to sporting event and concerts in their area or the area of their clients. As a benefit, Deloitte offers their executives to take their clients to all professional sporting events including the Super Bowl, World Series and NBA Finals in addition to any concert. Before the Deloitte Ticket System, executives would request tickets by leaving a voicemail and then going to an office and picking up a physical ticket. Not ideal!
Deloitte commissioned my team at redpepper to create a system (like Ticketmaster) where they could easily login and handle their tickets.

Nashville Sounds Promo
I had the honor to create this promotional video for the Nashville Sounds. Special thanks to Kevin Samborski, Brad Tammen, Doug Scopel, Coach Mike Guerrero and my wife Kathy Mitchell. The Nashville Sounds baseball team is located in Nashville, TN. At the time of this video they were the Triple-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. Music used with permission.

While at redpepper, I helped bring this web application to market. Developer Matt Reed came up with the code that mashed Google Maps and Instagram together. It gave the user a real-time look into anywhere in the world (even North Korea). I was responsible for the UX and UI. The Nashville Addy’s liked it so much they gave us an Addy. Google liked it so much that they Tweeted about it!

The events at Dave Ramsey are top notch! Summit is the biggest event that the EntreLeadership business unit has. It’s one of many events that my team produces each year. The 2018 Summit was held in San Antonio, TX at the JW Marriott Hill Country Resort & Spa. My team created a custom logo that was used throughout the event. We also designed and handled production for the hotel takeover pieces, event workbook, event smartphone app, speaker intro on stages and stage screen content. This event took an army to produce!
The Mitchell Bat Co Story
