Why Zach Chose His Major: "I chose my major because I've always been interested in teaching and I love trying to help others learn; I've also always enjoyed math, so I thought it was a good fit!"

Favorite Things: "Playing music (whether in a big group, a small jam session, or just messing around on the piano), listening to music (especially when I can blast it in my car while driving around), watching movies (I'm a big movie buff), reading"

Dislikes: "People cutting you off/merging at the very last second while driving, sushi, people who try to drag other people down"

Favorite Color: Blue

When Zach was a kid, he wanted to be a: Marine Biologist

Favorite Music Groups/Acts: "I have a pretty eclectic music taste, but I probably listen to Indie/Alternative the most. Three of my favorite bands are Coldplay, Twenty One Pilots, and Panic! at the Disco"

If Zach had a free night to do whatever he wanted, he would: "Talk to a few friends to see if they wanted to go somewhere cool (like downtown Milwaukee), and just walk around/hang out/see where the night takes us."

Hero/Heroine: "I don't necessarily have a single hero/heroine. Most all of the adults in my life (especially my parents and teachers) have instilled really amazing values and lessons in me throughout my childhood, but there's not just one person for me."

Goals as a Wisconsin Singer: "To work really hard and try my best. It's kind of my motto at everything, but if you don't give it your all, then really whats the point of doing it? I want to put on a really fun and entertaining show for our audiences, and try to make people leave feeling happy and that the last few hours were really well spent."
