It is currently too difficult for designers, artists, and inventors to source materials. To solve this problem, we are building an online store that will streamline the process of innovation and inspire everyone—regardless of profession—to explore whatʼs possible.

Zach has spoken on product development and innovation to audiences at conferences across the country, including the Technology Entertainment and Design Conference (TED), and Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) National Conference. His work has been covered by Business Week, Fortune, Forbes, CNN, and NPR. In 2006, he was honored by Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry as a Modern Leonardo da Vinci. He holds a bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Illinois.
