American Journalism Online 2021

Zach enrolled into the AJO program soon after graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University and taking on a job in Virginia as a local newspaper editor, where he worked throughout his tenure as an NYU online graduate student. He subsequently worked at the Atlanta Business Chronicle as a technology startup reporter and now works in Los Angeles as the Editor of Santa Monica Mirror, Yo! Venice and Palisades News.

“I enrolled into NYU’s program because it was a way to not only transcend my journalistic abilities, but to also think outside the box about the profession. Everything from the program’s courses on longform writing to investigative journalism and business reporting has done exactly that. The program’s impact on me continues to persist by being connected to such a vibrant community of brilliant journalists and mentors. Those relationships are invaluable.”
