"If you're going to write the future, you might as well write something worth reading."
Hi, I'm Zach.
I make ads, write stories, envision digital products and do manly arts and crafts. I started in the advertising business when I was 15 in my hometown of Buffalo, NY. Since then I've copywritten award winning work at places like Crispin Porter + Bogusky, Firstborn, Noise and McgarryBowen. I'm an idea person who is mosts passionate about creating experiences and products that have meaning for people. I have worked a great deal in digital content and experience creation. I've created a multi-platform video game for GE, a digital sensory experience for Wrigley, and an interactive augmented reality ad for Burger King.
In my time in advertising I've found myself more fulfilled by helping craft projects that do good or benefit societies. One I'm particularly proud of is the SciArt Series. We took 42 high school students from the International Science and Engineering Fair and paired them with world-renowned artists to create 42 original pieces of art based on scientific breakthroughs that the students made.
When I'm not writing ads I'm working on my historical fiction novel, or doing what I call manly arts and crafts.
