About Zach

My name is Zach and I graduated with a degree in Political Science from Davidson College in North Carolina. I'm currently looking to join an early stage startup in NYC (or remote), while also building a very small side business of my own.

My experience includes eight years in business development, account management, strategic partnerships, and operations management, including nine months (thanks, COVID!) leading partnerships and co-leading new city launch at VC-backed mobility startup, Revel Transit.

I also have eight years of leadership, strategic planning, operational execution, and logistics experience from my years in the US Army Reserve Corps of Engineers, including one deployment to the Middle East, where I managed 150+ soldiers spread across five countries. I'm currently a Captain, and just took command of a 150+ soldier engineering company.
