Mitch Trumpp believes that we were all put here on this earth for purpose. His is to make sure everything gets a second chance. His fabrication team at Second Life Studios transforms found and recycled materials into functional works of artistry that show up in cafes, restaurants and businesses across the US. And he considers himself truly lucky to be doing what he does. In the same way that he was given the chance to do what he loves everyday, he makes it his goal to do the same for others, even those who may have missed it the first time around.
WHAT HE DOES FOR WORK
Director of Fabrication at Second Life Studios, a custom fabrication and design firm. Using mostly repurposed materials, he oversees the builds for restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, businesses and more.
WHAT HE'S WORKING FOR
To give back to the community that has given him so much. Mitch believes in second chances in work and in life. His philosophy of bringing new life to old, worn materials extends to his commitment to helping people get back on their feet. When he started his business, he made it a point to have a few positions open for people who are down on their luck, giving them a chance at a second life.
Fishing, hunting, the outdoors and, of course, spending time with his wife and baby girl.
