Zach hails from St. Louis, Missouri. In college he came to realize his passion for education equity while studying abroad in South Korea. While studying education at the University of Arkansas, he learned that travel can be a great resource for experiential education. After graduating with a BSE in Kinesiology, he boarded a plane to South Korea to teach ESL in the public school system there. Experiential education is something that he believes all students need as a part of their education. In his free time, he enjoy being outdoors in all facets whether that be playing golf, hiking or camping.
