Kind Words from Peers

I can honestly say that Zach has been one of the most influential leaders and mentors I have had throughout my career. He took me in at the very beginning of my career and filled my time with so much encouragement and knowledge.

It’s been 2 years since his mentorship and I still look back on that time with gratitude. He is a designer I will always respect and look up to. He took the time to teach, challenge, listen, and motivate for better designs and experiences. He is a person you want to lead your team. A person who cares about those he is leading. I am a better designer because of him.
