I'm Zach and I'm an Independent. My mom worked in the public school system and my dad is a small business owner so it came naturally. I grew up in a protestant home. I graduated in 2000 from Northwestern College in Roseville, MN, with a double major in Communications and religion. For those who aren't familiar, Northwestern is a fairly conservative school outside of St. Paul. Before Billy Graham was a crusader, he was president of Northwestern College. I currently work in securities lending as a trader at a large company in downtown Minneapolis. I'm a proud resident of the Victory neigborhood in north Minneapolis.
