Hi there! My name is Zach. I was born and raised Westport, Connecticut, a coastal New England town near NYC. Ever since I was a child, it has always been a passion of mine to use my own imagination to craft unique worlds – from designing architectural structures and automobiles, to creating short films and photographic images. Eventually, these ventures resulted in finally discovering how I might shape the world of fashion.
Growing up I was usually caught day-dreaming out the window, sketching in my free time, or fiddling with any camera I could get my hands on. I was fascinated by the art of visuals and the ability to express one's emotion through something real or tangible. Whether simple or complex, I knew I was born to be involved in a creative and imaginative profession. The idea of generating visual art that incorporated all of the skillsets necessary to present a dream world, from film to photography to drawing, was fascinating.
Being passionately curious over the course of my life, independent filmmaking led me to directing movies and short videos; drawing led me to graphic design; and, photography led me to advertising lifestyles. It wasn't until I was fifteen years old that I discovered the one thing that lets me do all those things simultaneously and that is fashion.
During the past five years, fashion has given me the ability to do exactly what I want to do with my life: to be the architect of my own world, and to express that world visually through art. Photography and film allow me to brand a lifestyle and aesthetic, while drawing allows me to unleash my creative juices by designing clothing and graphics. Having found all these art forms so closely aligned to who I am, I have developed a passion and drive within myself to become the best in the field.
