Zachary is a designer, educator, and storyteller (and on his About page, he talks in the third person). His focus is on branding, advertising, socially-engaged design, and how all of those come together to tell the story of a brand, person, and/or community. To that end, he has worked with organizations and companies big and small, both locally and internationally, to create compelling stories through a variety of media.
Zachary is currently an Assistant Professor at California State University - Los Angeles in the Department of Art—Graphic Design Option. He teaches classes ranging from foundational design elements and conceptual development all the way up to the Senior Capstone class, where students refine their work and propose and design a Capstone design project.
When he's not teaching or pushing pixels, Zachary spends his free time traveling the world, binge-watching TV shows, and leading various friend groups through the creative mindscapes of tabletop RPGs.
