Zack grew up in New York in a small rural village about an hour north of NYC. He received his B.A. in Journalism from the University at Albany (SUNY). He comes from a mixed heritage, with his dad growing up in Ecuador and his mom being of Polish descent. Despite disliking English class in high school, he knew he had the ability to write well so he decided to expand upon that in college. Some of his interests include playing soccer, chilling at the beach, and spending time with his family.
