My name is Zach. I have never been one to fall in line like the
rest. I create. I create my own rules and my own path. I never
expected the overwhelming amount of cannot's and should not's but
those who tell me that I cannot only push me harder to do so,
something which I can only thank them for. If it weren't for those
like-minded folk I would find myself doing little to nothing in the
direction of my dreams.
I am a laid back, open-minded individual who steps off the grid and
into his own world.
What I’m doing with my life
What a question, one that I am not exactly sure of. I graduated with a marketing degree at The University of Akron. When I am not working I enjoy painting, writing, and drawing. Also, I get a kick out of some good video games. Other than that, I am basically just going with the flow.
A friend of mine recently started a local magazine for artists in the area, it has taught me how to finish through with my work and contain that wretched self-doubt artists tend to experience.
When I am not feeling creative I love hitting the greens for a round of 9, going on a hike, being outside in general, art or history museums, anything that might give me a drop of inspiration.
I’m really good at
Listening. To me, people tell fascinating tales that I find to be
inspirational at times. And I would say finding ways to harness my
creativity, in anyway I can.
Also, I am a pretty good writer. And I believe that the two go hand
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, my height, or my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I could go on and on about my favorite books but off the top of my head I would say The Shadow of the Wind, The Hero with a Thousand Faces, Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, Slaughterhouse Five, The Ender series, LOTR, Ishmael, and many more.
Movies are one of my passions, I will sit down and watch any movie regardless of what its about or who's in it.
I would say my favorite genre of music would be alternative, rock, indie, some hip-hop/rap, and folk(probably my favorite). Broken Bells, The Black Keys, Mumford and Sons, Fleet Foxes, Yeasayer, The Beatles, The Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead, Band of Horses, Local Natives, Dr. Dog, As Tall As Lions, Kid Cudi, Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Man Man, The Kooks, The Morning Benders, the list goes on and on haha
I love sushi, mexican food, italian food, american food, all food in general.
The six things I could never do without
My dog, Midge
I spend a lot of time thinking about
life. the universe. the world. everything. I love it, it is such a
shame when work gets in the way of my thoughts.
On a typical Friday night I am
Most likely, working. If I get lucky enough to have it off, I am likely hanging with friends, catching up, writing, just having a nice time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an unreasonable perfectionist of my writing
You should message me if
You actually plan on holding a conversation. No more of this one message malarkey then returning to the void from which you came.
