Zach is the original founder of Short Order. Zach grew up in a household where his mother published textbooks on Photoshop, Illustrator, and Fireworks (remember Fireworks?) As a child, he couldn't sleep, so he would stay up all night listening to old-time radio from people like Hitchcock and Orson Welles, as well as silly comedies like Fibber McGee and Molly and The Great Gildersleeve. After graduating from Syracuse University with a degree in film, he worked in commercial film and photography and then spent several years as a web designer/developer, because he knew about that stuff from his mom and he had a laptop. Today, he lives in Philadelphia with his wife and daughter, collects typewriters and 35mm film prints, and cooks delicious meals when he can.
