Hey, I'm Zak!
Toronto, Ontario, Canada · Member since May 2011

Hey, I’m Zak.

I was born in 1985 in London, Ontario. I grew up on the edge of a small farm town about 45 minutes away called Exeter. I have 5 younger brothers, and yes my mom is nuts (love ya mom).

I dropped out of the high school my mother was principal of to start a business, and ever since I shutdown shop to attend (and drop out of – a trend…) the University of Waterloo, my life revolves around the next business.

I’m a kickass electrical engineer (I cut my teeth at Waterloo start-up Sandvine as their optics and SI guy) and I like to think I’m half decent at some of this business stuff.

I spent my university career taking cool jobs in interesting places, and I’m itching to travel again, but for now I'm kickin' ass and takin' names at Upverter.
