After graduating from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, Zach left his home state of California to see if he could survive a real winter in Chicago. Along the way, his career has included roles in quality assurance, industrial design, and ultimately project management. However, his desire to return to his engineering roots led him to pursue a new and rewarding career in software development. After working his way through Dev Bootcamp in Chicago, Zach jumped at the opportunity to build innovative and creative solutions with the rest of the Cloudbakers team.
Outside of the office, Zach loves finding new adventures in Chicago. He is a big fan of cycling for both transportation and fitness - as long as the weather cooperates. During the colder seasons, he enjoys both playing and designing tabletop board games. He also enjoys a good karaoke night and isn't ashamed to admit it.
