Zach is a social science researcher, a filmmaker, an organizer with LGBTQ+ Animal Liberationists, and founder of DxE Connecticut. Zach studied in the Honors Program on Ethics, Politics and Economics at Yale University where he received Yale's prestigious Wrexham Prize for research in the social sciences. Zach is currently a Research Analyst at Innovations for Poverty Action, where he helps conduct randomized evaluations (the gold standard in social science) of poverty alleviation programs. Before coming to DxE, Zach participated in numerous social justice campaigns and taught in low-income neighborhoods. Zach's path to animal rights activism was lit by an excerpt from "The Lives of Animals" by J.M. Coetzee and he is inspired by the memory of the dog who he grew up with, Vikki.
