Zach was born and raised in Millcreek, he graduated from McDowell in 1996.  With a certification in Electro-Mechanical Engineering, he went on to earn his degree in Specialized Technology in 1999.

For a long while, he was a Film Projectionist (yes, actual 35mm film!) during the movie theater "Megaplex" boom of the 90's.  He worked several years in management, and then briefly as an engineer in cinema. 

After a brief stint in Pittsburgh, (Go Steelers!) he decided to return to Erie and pursue purchasing.

With experience in the technical field, purchasing, and management, in late 2017 he met with Joe, and was brought on board as the Resource Manager for Klein Plating.  In his off-time, he enjoys working on home improvement projects, spending time with his family, and building things. 

Zach's wife Chelsea is a Yoga teacher in Erie County, and their two awesome kids, Ellie and Johnny are the light of their lives!
