Zach started making videos on his parents camcorder back in middle school with friends in his hometown of Weston, CT. This hobby turned into a passion and career path after high school and in college.
Zach graduated with a Media & Communications in 2011 at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania. His most noteworthy accomplishment was being published in the Huffington Post for creating a “Top 10 LipDub video.”
Zach freelanced for years making videos for different events, short comedy sketches, and started assisting and apprenticing with renowned photographers and production companies.
He moved to Tulsa, OK after college to teach with Teach For America which greatly shaped who he is today. After three years in Tulsa, Zach has settled in Austin, TX where he founded Zcartt Productions in 2014.
Through his different careers in education, internships, odd jobs, and apprenticeships, Zach developed his own style and craft. As Zcartt Productions emerged, it carried with it the theme of strong storytelling and compelling images and audio.
Zach has been influenced greatly by the many production companies he worked with, photographers, and collaborators; although he attributes most of his style to the many hours of research he does daily on YouTube (which is also known as just watching videos on YouTube).
When he’s not behind a camera, Zach loves to be outdoors spending time with friends, playing volleyball, tennis, biking, working out, and trying new places to eat.
He recently became a big brother through Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Austin, conducts phone interviews for Teach For America, and spends most weekends filming weddings, or taking road trips and photos for fun.
Zach’s fun fact is that he is a huge cartoon fan. He loves Spongebob, Dragon Ball Z, Avatar, and if not for his poor drawing skills, he may have become a cartoon animator.
