Zach is a high school student from Westlake Village, CA. He has always had a love for exploration, and his current goal is to become the youngest person to fly in space.
Zach works as the Communications and Youth Outreach Associate for XCOR Aerospace, a commercial space company focused on the research and development of safer and more reliable, reusable launch vehicles that will take not only people, but also experiments into space. He shares his love and passion for space with his peers as he speaks to students around the country about exploration and the endless opportunities available to them as the commercial space market begins to grow.
Beyond schoolwork and his job at XCOR, Zach is also a TED Talk speaker, award-winning filmmaker, founder of Pink for a Purpose (a school-based fundraising platform supporting breast cancer research), a network television featured young stock and real estate investor, six-time class president, member of his high school Student Council and Model United Nations executive boards, and an avid traveler who has explored over 30 countries.
