Santa Barbara, Ca

I'm a full-time rambler and contract designer with as many skill sets in my quiver as there are plane tickets in my passbook. I've worked in ornamental iron, jigsaw puzzle design, bookmaking, glass engraving, and a variety of other mediums. I'm currently living out of a backpack as I trek my way around the world.

About Zak

Where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world.

My first memory was at eight months old, and at the age of five I proclaimed Rube Goldberg my Hero of Wit & Whim. The following year,  I began dabbling in the basic mechanics of human flight using little more than cardboard, duct tape, and my only pair of tennis shoes. I fell like a rock from the tippy-top of the playground, but my head remained in the clouds. I've been brainstorming ever since.

My business card reads: "Category Five Creative Force," and other than that I don't have an incredibly specific job description. With a variety of backgrounds in illustration, design, and the trades, I feel equipped to tackle creative hurdles in a variety of mediums. Currently, I design books for Amazon/Createspace, make jigsaw puzzles for an artisan puzzle company, make logos and branding kits for various businesses, and create UI experiences for iOS. To top it all off, I travel the world while doing it. I'm a full-time rambler, and am incredibly excited and grateful for this opportunity.
