DanceSafe’s NEW National Outreach Director!
Mitchell Gomez, MURP
Mitchell Gomez is a graduate of New College of Florida (whose Alumni included the founders of Erowid, MAPS and the Zendo Project), and has his Masters in Urban and Regional Planning from CU Denver. Although his research interests are extremely diverse, he is particularly interested in program evaluation and policy analysis as it pertains to the non-profit sector. Mitchell has been a part of the electronic music community since the late 90′s, when he first started attending underground breaks shows while still in high-school. In 1999 while living in Israel, he became one of the earliest full time professional fire spinners, eventually performing at some of the biggest electronic music events on four continents. While attending New College of Florida, Mitchell was instrumental in helping to bring the EDM scene back to campus after a multi-year hiatus, and during this time ran an ‘all trance, all the time’ sound camp at the Florida regional burns.
Mitchell joined Dancesafe as their National Outreach Director this week of April 20, 2014. He is responsible for all volunteer coordination, the development, implementation, and evaluation of new training curriculum, and outreach initiatives. He has volunteered with the Burning Man organization, The Zendo Project, SSDP and other small harm reduction projects for many years, and is a passionate advocate for reality-based drug policy and harm reduction.
