Zack saw the disconnect between the justice system and the communities they were meant to serve while interning for a city prosecutor in California. This experience sparked a desire to work on structural reforms in poverty and justice. His final year of college offered opportunities to deepen his interest in criminal justice reform and in particular, conditions in confinement.
Prior to joining Impact Justice, Zack worked as a researcher on food assistance and rent burden. He also worked for organizations that serve foster youth and immigrant communities in the Los Angeles area. He holds a bachelor of science degree in public policy (honors) and a bachelor of arts in Spanish, Phi Beta Kappa, from the University of Southern California.
