Zach was born and raised in Colorado, enjoys a good Netflix binge here and there, and loves all things chocolate. After graduating from University of Denver, Zach worked in HR at Sports Authority (RIP) for 3 years before being bit by the ministry bug. After a few years of ignoring that call, he jumped into the internship program at Red Rocks Church in 2017 and hasn't looked back! In his spare time, you can find Zach enjoying hipster coffee shops, heading to the theater to watch the latest blockbuster, or hanging out with his homies somewhere around Denver.
