Comedian, author, television writer, public speaker, and YouTube personality.
In 2011, Zach won his own travel show on the Oprah Winfrey Network, Rollin’ With Zach and went on to create & host the shows Have A Little Faith & Earth Your While for Rainn Wilson’s media company SoulPancake. He also released the Google & Reddit backed series Riding Shotgun and the popular Workout Wednesdays on his own YouTube channel.
Zach’s work combines warmth, authenticity, irreverence, and infectious optimism to create “meaningful silliness” – humorous content that delivers substantive messages with the laughs. His ability to connect with audiences and knack for creating viral content has netted his videos over a hundred million views across social media platforms and helped change the conversation around disability. He is an ambassador for the Cerebral Palsy Foundation and has worked with United Cerebral Palsy’s Wheels for Humanity program to distribute wheelchairs to disadvantaged communities in Nicaragua.
Zach’s candid and hilarious memoir, If At Birth You Don’t Succeed, was published in 2016 to rave reviews. In 2017 he was invited to guest star opposite Minnie Driver on an episode of “Speechless” – a comedic sitcom about a special needs family. ABC hired him as a full-time staff writer for Season 2.
A native of Buffalo, NY, Zach now lives in Los Angeles and spends most of his spare time in his underwear, thinking about how he can change the world.
