He has been actively working in the industry since 2007 when his father employed him as a carpentry apprentice in the family business – Watara Homes. After many years thriving in his position at Watara, he recognised the need for career progression and applied for his own Builders License. In 2015, he completed his Certificate IV in Building & Construction and established his first company, MC Aspecs Pty Ltd while still working for Watara Homes. In late 2015, his father Geoff retired and Mitchell took ownership of Watara Homes with which he continued to build on the reputation that was created the 20+ years prior.
