About Zach

A (Very) Brief History

Pitching for St. Thomas

I grew up in the small town of Princeton, MN. As the oldest of three brothers, I spent the majority of my time playing baseball and basketball for the Princeton Tigers.

I went on to play college baseball for the University of St. Thomas and try to discover what I wanted to spend the rest of my life doing.

After switching majors seven times it was becoming abundantly clear that my search wasn’t yielding any answers. I left school and pursued a career as a wedding DJ/salesman.

Working the State Fair for KSTP-TV

During that time I exhausted myself trying to turn multiple part-time jobs into a full-time income. At one point, I was simultaneously working events for a radio station, delivering pizzas, DJing, selling for the DJ company, and working as an usher at the Target Center.

After burning the candle at both ends for a number of years, I decided to return to school and pursue my passion for storytelling and entertaining.

Today, I’ve graduated from St. Thomas with a bachelors degree in Communications and Journalism and I live in St. Paul with my wife Callan. I’ve been working to gain as much experience in audio and video production as I possibly can. I interned on the Cities97 morning show for a summer, worked as the Chief Video Editor for St. Thomas’s TommieMedia, and I have produced a radio show for KUST and a podcast for a Vikings fan website.
