Biography: Zach is a screenwriter in the Twin Cities who's written 12 feature-length screenplays and more than 40 short script. His shorts, "Treading Water" and "After I Kill Mrs. Pritchett I'm Coming After You" were produced in 2012. His first feature film credits ("Dead Mountain Road" and "What Happened to Christine") are expected in late 2015. His feature script "How We Really Won the Space Race," written for the 2011 Movie Poet feature contest, has been optioned by Royer Films.

He is a three-time winner of the Metropolitan State University Student Screenplay Awards as well as a quarter-finalist in the 2011 FadeIn Awards and a semi-finalist in the 2011 BlueCat Screenplay Competition (both for "Treading Water.")

His feature script "The Incedible Frog Boy Is On the Loose Again!" was named a Top 100 Semi-Finalist in the 2013 Table Read My Screenplay Contest, a Top 10% script in the 2014 BlueCat Screenplay Competition, and a Semi-Finalist in the 2014 ScreenCraft Screenwriting Fellowship.

Zach holds a B.A. in Screenwriting from Metropolitan State University and is taking 2014 to work on new material (writing scripts and hopefully shooting a feature) before deciding on where he'll pursue an M.F.A.
