Zach is a music manager at Maverick Management whose roster includes top artists like Lil Nas X. His premier focus is to help artists develop and execute their creative visions through multiple projects, transitions and media. Zach’s first taste of the music industry was in high school when he started a not-for-profit concert in support of a friend who passed away from brain cancer. In recognizing the oncoming popularity of electronic dance music in the US, Zach began booking talent and promoting concerts in an effort to raise money for pediatric cancer research. From there, he went on to work at Sony Music, WME, and UTA, all of which gave him a well-rounded view of the entertainment industry and prepared him for his role at Maverick. In identifying new talent, Zach looks for groundbreaking, polarizing artists who push boundaries and go against what's considered normal.
