Zach is a screenwriter in the Twin Cities. He's written more than thirty shorts, ranging from 2-3 pages to 30 pages, with a few being independently produced. His first feature film credits ("Dead Mountain Road" and "What Happened to Christine") are expected in late 2014/early 2015.
His screenplay "The Throw" won the 2010 Metropolitan State University Short Screenplay Contest. You can find an interview with him discussing that script, the contest, and screenwriting here: themetropolitan.metrostate.edu/July_August2010/072010008.html
His script "Treading Water" won the 2011 Metropolitan State University Short Screenplay Contest and was a semi-finalist in the 2011 BlueCat Fellini Screenplay Competition and a quarter-finalist in 15th Annual Fade In Awards. The script has been optioned and produced and is currently making the festival circuit.
In March 2012 he became the first three-time winner of the Metropolitan State University Short Screenplay Contest with his script "In the Arms of Denial."
In September 2013, his feature script "The Incedible Frog Boy Is On the Loose Again!" was named a Top 100 Semi-Finalist in the Table Read My Screenplay Contest.
When not writing scripts, reading scripts, shooting movies, watching movies, reading about movies, or writing about movies, Zach attends school and takes care of his toddler sons. And whatever else his wife tells him to do.
