I'm Zach. I currently reside in Brooklyn. I lived the first 20 years of my life in a small town just north of Nashville. Since then my life has changed a ton. I moved to Montana to plant a church, got married, finished school in Arizona (Go Sun Devils!), fell away from my beliefs, moved back to Montana to be close to her family, then took a travel position for work moving to Pennsylvania, Texas, and ending up in NYC somehow. Jump ahead not too far and I'm divorced now at the ripe old age of 30 we just couldn't reconcile our differences of beliefs. And as Louis CK says...
I've learned a lot in my time so far and always love learning more. I currently design building components for a construction company based in North Carolina. Think Sears catalog homes but completely custom. I have been dating someone for awhile now. We sing and play music together. So much so that a band formed and we are playing gigs all around the NYC area and wanting to branch into the New England states. I have a semi-better relationship with my family. We talk now on occasion which is great. I am trying to eat better and if I'm not playing music you can find me on my bicycle. In the past year I am down almost 60lbs. My technique has been portion control and simply burning more calories then I take in. On the Collings front...so far I have been lucky enough to own two Collings instruments. I own a CW Indian ASB serial #23925. I got it straight from the factory. I also have the pleasure of owning a Collings WL-K Custom serial #1000. I'm told this is the first Southwest model that Collings made and the one used for the NAMM show that year. Most every photo you see online promoting the Southwest Model is most likely my guitar."Someday, one of your friends is gonna get divorced, it's gonna happen, and they're gonna tell you. Don't go, 'ohhhh I'm sorry.' That's a stupid thing to say. First of all you're making 'em feel bad for being really happy, which isn't fair. And second of all: divorce is always good news. I know that sounds weird, but it's true, because no good marriage has ever ended in divorce. It's really that simple."
Aside from guitar I also play banjo, mandolin, ukulele, and upright bass
That's a good chunk of my life condensed into a few lines of text...many of you now know more about me then most of my family...so with that...tell me about you!
