If you hate what you’re reading, you can blame Zac’s dad. His extensive collection of X-Men and Ghost Rider comics taught Zac the value of punchy and inventive copy (this had other major setbacks to his development, but we don’t have time for that).
Because of this childhood exposure to all things Marvel and DC, the margins of Zac’s schoolbooks weren’t filled with the typical academic chicken scratch but with doodles depicting fantastic heroes and villains.
But in college, that all changed.
Participating in a traveling student film festival, Zac was exposed to dangerous levels of screenwriting (a similarly corrupting trade to writing comics). Soon, he found himself devouring everything he could about this new craft. And to his surprise, Zac found a modicum of success in this area – winning this student film festival, placing in writing contests, and even pitching a TV pilot to Adult Swim and Netflix.
Diving headfirst into film and television, Zac found himself working for small production houses where he rounded out his repertoire with editing, producing, and directing short-form content.
All the while, Zac never lost sight of writing. In fact, Zac’s written everything from academic resources at an apologetics ministry to men’s grooming articles for the fastest growing beard care brand in the US.
Now, Zac dutifully serves at Mighty 8th, writing colorful and engaging copy for their clients. In particular, he loves writing radio and television spots.
When not writing and concepting at the Hangar, Zac is at home playing N64 with his wife and daughter.
