He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in flight technology, airplane ratings of commercial, multi engine, instrumentation & flight

from Delta Community College in Saginaw MI.
Mitch has more than 20 years of design experience in the field of landscape Illumination. He began his career in Dallas TX in the early 80’s.
Being from MI he decided to go back north to the Midwest near his family and get out of the intense heat of the south.
Mitch opened his first shop in 1987 in Lake Zurich IL. In the early years he was dedicated to only 120 volt lighting, since low
voltage was very underdeveloped and just not practical for the serious high end type systems that Mitch was creating.
During the mid 90’s Mitch worked with some of his suppliers, such as GE to produce better type lamps which included a series of
Low-Voltage lamps. Mitch designed all his own fixtures from the bottom up and developed a very simple but eloquent style of
illumination that was very dramatic and subtle in its implementation.
Mitch has been recognized at the World Lighting Fair for his design excellence and asked to speak on many occasions at the Chicago
Botanical Garden, Morton Arboretum, Golf Course Superintendents Association, American Society of Landscape Architects, and Illinois
Landscape Contractors Association along with many private clubs and associations.
Mitch oversees the daily operation of the business along with providing significant sales due to his vast network of clients. As the
founder of the company he is also very involved in the design process, the training of all designers and maintaining Night Light’s
focus on top quality and simplicity.
