HI! I'M ZAC! After 20+ years of experience, I have realized and helped create dreams for all kinds of events and budgets. I'll be honest with you, you be honest with me, and we will find an agreement that suits us both.
I enjoy talking with my clients over the phone or meeting in-person to hear their stories of how they met, their personal and professional likes and dislikes, their stories, and experiences so that I can craft a custom experience for both couple and event guests.
I was a pastor for over 15 years until I resigned in 2011 because I desired a lifestyle and service of greater human inclusivity than my religion could provide. I am licensed and ordained to officiate both weddings and funerals, but my personality and heart have led me into entertainment and corporate events.
My love for people is what drew me to this work, but my personality, sense of humor, and empathic sensitivities have given me success in it.
I have worked with humans and corporations of all religious backgrounds and non-religious practices. No matter the history, belief system, or need, I have been able to learn the ceremonial and cultural ways of every practice to provide the event each customer desired with the added flare of my personality and unique flavor.
