Jason has many years of extensive experience in the travel industry. While completing his Ph.D. in Classics from Princeton, he co-founded the Paideia Institute which has helped people travel to Italy, Greece, France, Germany, and more. Jason was lucky enough to be able to find and connect with his relatives in Italy and, knowing what a powerful experience it can be, now wants to help others do the same.
After graduating from Williams College in 2016 with a degree in Classics, Mitchell spent the next three year living in Rome serving as Tours Manager for the Paideia Institute during which time he led tours around Italy, Sicily, and Greece. During this time he fell in love with Italy. Now a high school teacher at Blair Academy, Mitchell is excited to continue helping connect people to Italian culture and experience the wonders of travel.
Between around 1880 and 1924, more than four million Italians immigrated to the United States, fleeing grinding rural poverty in Southern Italy and Sicily. Many Italian Americans have close relatives in Italy they've never met!
