He holds a Bachelor's Degree in theater from UC Irvine's Claire Trevor School of the Arts, and is a house performer for the Upright Citizens Brigade in Los Angeles. He performs regularly at UCB with Cardinal Redbird, and the musical improv teams Baby Wants Candy and Magic to Do. He is also a co-writer/co-composer of Thrones! The Musical Parody, a Game of Thrones musical which has played in Chicago, LA, and two sold out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Zachis the star of the College Humor Go90 series Fatal Decision, and has also appeared on Crazy Ex Girlfriend (The CW), A.P. Bio (FOX), Party Over Here (FOX), Conan (TBS), The Life in Pieces (CBS), Hotwives of Las Vegas (Hulu), Comedy Bang! Bang! (IFC), Adam Ruins Everything (truTV) and more. Most importantly, he is the voice of an animated skunk for Sophia the First (Disney).
He is also one half of the musical sketch duo, The Zach and The Jess with Jessica McKenna. They've written musical sketches for Party Over Here, Buzzfeed, FunnyOrDie, and Nickelodeon, and they created and starred in "Serious Music," a digital series for ABC. They also do a weekly improvised musical podcast called, "Off Book" on Earwolf. Between their podcast and UCB performances Zach and Jess sometimes improvise four musicals a week, which is part of their ongoing campaign to get Lin Manuel Miranda and Stephen Sondheim to stop being nerds and pick up the pace.
