In Mitesh’s spare time, he enjoys being an eclectic listener of a variety of music including such genres such as 80’s hits, techno/house music, r&b/hip hop, and reggae/dancehall. His “musicaholic” tendencies have provided fun-filled opportunities for his family to spend quality time with each other at home and at artist concerts such as Madonna, U2, Tiesto, Dave Matthews Band, and Outkast. The small things in life of having his music collection sync with his smartphone, media player, laptop, and car bring satisfaction to Mitesh while excelling in his personal and professional life.
