After graduating college with a degree in marketing, Zach moved to Mexico Beach in 2004 and hit the ground running. Besides working, he loves the fishing and many other outdoor activities that the area has to offer. Grouper, Red Snapper, Wahoo, Tuna, Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Cobia, Pompano and many other types of fish often have Zach trying to catch them or spear them while scuba diving. He also enjoys duck hunting, kayaking, tennis, jogging (maybe not), golf, and getting to know other people that enjoy coming to this place that he loves and calls home.
