I met Zach back in high school, and we’ve remained good friends since then. His story is one that I’ve wanted to tell for a while because it has a lot of highs and lows, but nonetheless he’s kept his eyes on his goal and done what needs to be done to get there.

What I admire most about Zach, is that he understood what had to be done to reach his goal of being a professional musician, and he is doing it. He saved up money and quit his day job to focus all of his attention on drumming. Risky? Yes. Necessary? Yes.
