A native New Yorker, Zach graduated from Binghamton University in 2013 and Syracuse Law in 2016. He developed an appreciation for free speech while leading the College Libertarians and the Federalist Society: In these roles, he sought to bring those with divergent opinions together for debate and discussion. His experience as a founding father of the Pi Kappa Alpha chapter at Binghamton inspired his advocacy for student groups as a First Amendment attorney at FIRE.
Outside of FIRE, Zach serves on the board of directors of the First Amendment Lawyers Association and the Philadelphia Area Disc Alliance. He enjoys learning new board and card games, playing Ultimate Frisbee, and extolling the many virtues of the greatest city on earth—Philadelphia.
