Having also dipped his hands into architectural design (storefront), he continues to explore light in various ways.
Zach enjoys bringing new thoughts and a healthy dose of collaboration to his design process.
"I enjoy working with light because it is an intangible medium, it requires full use of a single bodily sense and specific mindset to create the desired composition."
