Having grown up most of his life in Storrs, Conn., Zachary moved to Austin, Texas after high school to work with the AmeriCorps organization Environmental Corps. He identifies as a Quaker from his involvement with youth groups growing up (Friends Camp in South China, ME and Young Friends out of New England Yearly Meeting) and was also in the Quaker Leadership Scholars Program at Guilford, where he graduated in 2014 with a major in community and justice studies and a double minor in visual arts; sculpture and environmental studies. Zach counsels students in Ala., Alaska, Ark., Ariz., Fla., Hawaii, Iowa, Ind., Kan., Ky., La., Minn., Miss., Mo., Mont., N.D., Neb., N.M., Nev., Okla., S.D., Tenn., Texas, S.D., Utah, W.V. and Wyo., as well as the western, south central and north central regions of N.C.
My hobbies vary depending on the weather mostly. If it isn't sunny enough to throw a frisbee, rock climb, or go for a bike ride, you can probably catch me editing a video project I am working on or cooking up a delicious vegetarian meal.
Favorite thing about Guilford
One of my countless favorite aspects about Guilford was the experiential learning in every classroom. I found the best lessons to be the ones that aren't planned or in a syllabus but the times where the teacher engaged the students in productive and transformative tangents. Hearing about other people's perspectives on ideas and philosophies on any given topic was what I took away from class the most.
