Ten-year-old Zach from Miami Beach, Florida is an aspiring Air Force pilot who is influenced greatly by his father. Aside from his father, Zach also looks up to individuals such as John F. Kennedy and Theodore Roosevelt as the best American presidents. He believes that the world's major problems are global warming, war and racism. A member of the American Tae Kwon Do Association, Zach enjoys watching Courage the Cowardly Dog and Dexter.
Zach is one of 40 participants aged 8 to 15 in CBS' Kid Nation, a reality series set in the deserted Bonanza City, New Mexico. The series will test the kids' endurance for independence as they are required to live adult-free, which means that they have to work and govern themselves, and engage in games set by the show itself. Every episode will feature a town meeting wherein the kids discuss issues and award a worthy kid with a gold star worth $20,000.
