He is currently looking forward to beginning the second year of his Master of Music degree in clarinet performance this fall at the Eastman School of Music where he will continue his studies under Professor Michael Wayne.
In his spare time Zack enjoys riding his bike around Rochester in search for the perfect donut, as well as writing and watching stand-up and sketch comedy.
