When not working, Zach can be found chasing after his son, Noah, or ushering him to Hippo playground in Riverside Park. The time he cherishes most, however, is when he and Noah sing along to the Traveling Wilburys' greatest hits every morning. Zach’s goal as a financial advisor is to help his clients carve out more time during the day for their own special moments with their children, spouse, or passion. Alleviating money stress so that his clients can lead a rich life is what he strives to do every day.
Zach also enjoys reading in his spare time, with George Saunders, Michel Houellebecq, Gary Shteyngart, and Sam Lipsyte among his favorite authors. Fleishman Is in Trouble is his best read of late, and he is looking forward to getting his hands on Serotonin. He credits his wife, Abby, for making him an avid reader of fiction. He also sends out a weekly newsletter, Your Weekend Warm-Up, highlighting interesting articles he has come across, movies he has seen, or books he has read.
He graduated from Indiana University with a BA in history and Spanish. After playing a small – but nevertheless important – role while helping his high school basketball team capture a state championship, he has remained a devoted Indiana basketball fan. He desperately wants his beloved Hoosiers to field a competitive men’s basketball team at some point in the near future.
He also attended Georgetown University, receiving an MA from its School of Foreign Service. He is conversant in Romanian (“E adevărat, vorbesc româneşte!”) from his time as a Peace Corps Volunteer and holds FINRA Series 7 and 66 securities registrations through Commonwealth Financial Network®.
