More About Zach

Why I work at The Iowa Center: I grew up in (very) small town Iowa where the people and businesses that shaped my understanding of community were one in the same. I believe vested interest in small business is essential to the identity and success of any town, big or small, and I am excited to help facilitate that across the state in any way I can.

Ask me about: Music, bike trails across Iowa, fly fishing, and community gardening.

I dream of a day when…: Local markets once again become the central place for people to eat, shop, relax, and interact with their community. 

A few of my favorite small businesses: Zanzibar’s Coffee Adventure, Back Country, Art Terrarium, Tacos Mariana’s, Freds Bike Shop, Rod & Rivet
