In addition to the Bowman Creek project and caddying, Zach's work experience includes being a bag room attendant at the SBCC, delivering packages with UPS as a driver helper, working as a dishwasher at Kappa Alpha Theta (at Purdue), an internship with the Center for C-SPAN Scholarship & Engagement, and a management internship at the Studebaker National Museum.
