Zach is based in Los Angeles and Chicago. He grew up in San Francisco, at the foot of Mount Davidson – The City's highest peak.
Zach has experience in commercial, television, film, print, and voice-over work.
He trained at A.C.T.'s Young Conservatory and The Theatre School at DePaul University (formerly the Goodman School of Drama).
At 16, he’d travelled to England three times – twice at the invitation of the Royal National Theatre (in collaboration with the Young Conservatory's New Plays program) – to observe, learn and assist in the development of co-commissioned new work. One of these co-commissions is Horton Foote’s The Actor (among the last plays authored by the late Mr. Foote). Zach had the honor of originating the title role in the world premiere of The Actor for A.C.T.’s Young Conservatory in 2002.
He was awarded twice at The Theatre School, a renowned B.F.A. acting conservatory, being named Theatre Talent Scholar and Itkin-Healy Merit Scholar.
Launching a career in the City of the Big Shoulders, Zach worked with notable Chicago theaters: American Blues (where he is proud to be an Artistic Affiliate), The Inconvenience, Steppenwolf, Goodman, Victory Gardens, TimeLine, ATC, Griffin, Chicago Dramatists, and others. He has also enjoyed working with a few of the country’s leading regional houses.
He has also garnered experience as an invited reader for auditions and cast readings – including sessions for Broadway and major Hollywood feature films.
Zach currently lives in Los Angeles and enjoys cycling (Fuji/Giant), dry fly fishing (Sage/Galvan), skiing (Rossignol/Nordica), and playing guitar (Takamine/Martin/Air).
