Who is your role model and why? “My father, Donald Zach; he has taught me so many things, chief among them, from a business standpoint; is to always remember that the customer is king.  Treat them right and you will have a customer for life.  From a personal point of view he has shown unflagging support for me throughout my life but especially as I endeavored to take on a business of my own.  It is that kind of support that has really given me the confidence to move forward.  I hope to be able to pay it forward to someone else as they go after their own dreams.”
What was the funniest thing that has ever happened to you? “My life is a comedy show so there are many but most recently it has to be realizing that I had punched in the wrong code into the security system, then failed to clear it and ended up setting the alarm off. As the alarm blared I chuckled to myself thinking ‘at least I know the security system works!  I wonder what’s going to happen to me when the police arrive.  Jailhouse orange is definitely not my color.'”
