Mitchell Bogatz was born in Westlake Village, California. He grew up with three siblings: an older sister, a younger sister and a younger brother. He grew up watching a movie a night, and quickly found a love for good stories. He was interested in literature from a young age, even attempting at the age of twelve to write a novel entitled The Mercenary, a fantasy story about a killer's unlikely search for love. Even with these young aspirations, it wasn't until his Freshman year at UC Santa Barbara that Mitchell realized he wanted to write professionally. Despite interests in Psychology and Philosophy, he found himself constantly returning to his love for literature. Under the guidance of professional screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson (The Secretary; Chloe; Men, Women & Children) he wrote his first screenplay All That Remains. It was then that Mitchell realized his true passions. From there, he found an interest in editing, and went on to write four more screenplays and a science fiction novel Tiny Instruments. Mitchell continues to write daily. He currently resides in Santa Barbara, California.
