Hi, I'm Zack. I'm a published author, screenwriter, internet radio host and general manager of an independent podcast network. I've been involved with the indie side of the entertainment industry for almost six years now. It all started with an indie music podcast that I created called The Mothpod. I had been a fan of such podcasts as Diggnation, Rocket Boom and the like for a while, so I decided to try it out. It was mostly a hobby at first, but slowly it morphed into a career.
Currently I'm hosting a live internet radio program and syndicated podcast called Midnight Spookshow. It's a horror entertainment news show that is more about geek fights than anything else. Seriously, it's the only show that you'll find five people sitting around arguing over a film about a killer turkey… Long story. Feel free to ask.
Anyway, through podcasting I was able to meet a lot of contacts in the entertainment industry. No, I don't know J.J. Abrams or anyone of that magnitude, but I was able to publish a couple books and get a screenplay for a short film produced. I'm writing a series of novels called Dark Worlds. It's a horror series, which I know not everyone is into that genre, but I love it. The first novel in the series I self-published about two years ago. As for the short film, it has premiered at IU's local film festival and the Days of the Dead horror convention, and was well received at both. Now on to the next film...
Maybe it was from growing up with Ghostbuster action figures or reading Goosebumps in grade school, but I am a HUGE fan of the horror genre. I know that it's not for everyone, but it is big part of who I am. I'd love to date someone that is a fan of the genre and would be genuinely excited to join me at screenings of new horror films or conventions. If you aren't into horror, that's fine. Just understand that this is my career and what I write.
For complete disclosure I should mention that I have used a wheelchair my entire life. More specially a powerchair. I'm not paralyzed, but I do have spine damage. If you have any questions about it, feel free to ask. I'm an open book.
