Zak was born in New York and has desperately been trying to get back ever since.
Raised in Richmond, Virginia, his parents enrolled him in the School of the Performing Arts in the Richmond Community (SPARC)
at the young age of 5 because a friend said, "he doesn’t sing like the other kids."
Zak stayed with SPARC until he was 16, when he attended Ann Reinking & Debra McWater's Broadway Theatre Project (BTP) in Tampa, FL.
He spent the next 3 summers there learning from the best of the best.
After high school, Zak moved to Pittsburgh, PA to attend Carnegie Mellon University's prestigious School of Drama
-- where he double majored in Musical Theatre and Acting.
In his senior year at CMU, Zak spent a semester studying abroad at the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA)
in Sydney, Australia, where he worked with the most wonderful, talented group of people and learned so much about
life, art, beauty...and of course theatre. While he was in Sydney, he also started writing his debut album.
Keep your eyes (and ears) peeled for that!
For the past year, Zak has had the pleasure of singing with the vocal group The Broadway Boys,
performing all over New York City and on the ROSIE Cruise (if you don’t know the group, you’re missing out!).
Singing Broadway standards and holiday classics in a new age way -- with hot arrangements, heavy beats, and of course...a bit of riffing.
Zak's favorite roles include: LAST FIVE YEARS (Jamie), DON CARLOS (Lerma),
ROCKY HORROR SHOW, LIVE! (Brad), INTO THE WOODS (Rapunzel’s Prince),
110º IN THE SHADE (File), BAT BOY: THE MUSICAL (Rick & Lorraine), and GODSPELL (Jesus).
Now Zak is living in New York City, where he has so long waited to return. Life is good.
