Born in Atlanta, and raised in New York, Zach doesn’t really like talking about himself in the third person, but he’ll give it a shot anyway. After graduating with honors in Film and English from Emory University, Zach was driven to further explore what it meant to be creative because that’s what creatives do, right?

With an eagerness to explore and an unyielding ability to instill at least a little bit of fun in everything he does, Zach brings an ever-present desire to pursue quality without giving up what made him enjoy the creative process in the first place.
