During his time in political science at Florida Gulf Coast University, Zach began to study the Spanish language independently. Originally for its own sake, it later appeared to have the potential to be an important asset for a career in political analysis. Coupled with his interests in state and non-state violence, and the field of intelligence, Latin America had a particular draw as a region in which to specialize. Recent travels to Cuba and Mexico have only deepened this fascination with the many complexities and vibrant cultures to be found throughout. Zach is currently pursuing his Masters in Latin American studies at the Center with a specialization in Crime, Law, and Governance.
