Getting the Edge on Zack

First Job:
Front Counter Attendant at an equipment/party rentals shop.  One minute I was power-washing industrial equipment in the yard, the next I was helping pick out plates, glasses and linens for parties.  I was the jack (or Zack, sorry) of all trades.

Favorite thing to do outside of work:
Anything outdoors! Hiking, biking, snowboarding, and exploring the Great Northwest.  Big Basketball fan, played almost every team sport at least once while growing up.  I’m a big family-man; we get together for birthdays, graduations, (Insert special event here) on a monthly basis.  Spend a lot of time with my church but also making sure that we spend time in our geographic communities!  I believe that any group is only as impactful as your connections with the outside world and the good work you do there.

Favorite quote:
“I shall pass this way but once; any good that I can do or any kindness I can show to any human being; let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” – Etienne de Grellet

Things your mother would approve of:
-I’ll eat anything, or should I say, “try” anything at least once.

-When I am eating, I chew with my mouth closed.

-I’m as nice and polite as I can be with everyone I meet.

Favorite music:
A little bit of everything.  I lean towards alternative (think red hot chili peppers, foo fighters, arcade fire, mumford and sons) but I can appreciate country, classical, EDM, rap, praise/worship, you name it.  We constantly have music in the background at work and it can sometimes create channel-surfing “battles” as everyone wants to be DJ.  I’m just happy there’s music!
