Despite being a chronic doodler, Zach never expected to be a filmmaker. From farming radishes on less than $1 a day in rural Guatemala to living in a tent in a Syrian refugee camp, he hopes to bring new perspective to some of the world’s most pressing issues. Zach and his co-founder Chris directed, produced and starred in Living on One Dollar and Salam Neighbor. Both films can be found globally on Netflix.
