Zac has been involved in event and festival production since getting involved with Earthdance festival in 2003 and has spent time in nearly every facet of operations at festivals around the globe, supporting an international network of participatory arts events. He first attended Burning Man in 2007, and immediately recognized it as the most profound example of creative human gathering. He dove deeply into participation, becoming a member of Center Camp Cafe leadership, the Department of Public Works and the Playa Restoration team. He has worked as a member of the Burning Man Communications team since 2013, where he leads high-level strategic communications and media relations. He also manages operations for the Communications Department’s on-playa teams and supports the freshly undertaken Fly Ranch project. Outside of Burning Man, Zac is the Co-producer of The Bloom documentary series about festivals and festival culture and a board member of Oakland Art Murmur nonprofit.
