Zachary Ziegler is the Marketing and Media Assistant at Independence Institute.

A proud Denver native, Zach comes to II as a personal penance for his red state turning blue. Zach joined the Marine Corps after high school where he served as an avionics technician, including 12 months aboard the USS Nimitz. Following his enlistment, Zach attended the University of Denver where he studied international business, legal studies and marketing.

While he is from the area, Zach is a cosmopolitan by every measure. He has run with the bulls in Pamplona, studied art in Paris, prayed at the western wall in Jerusalem, and seen kabuki theater in Tokyo. His numerous international exploits are domestically complimented by having lived on each of the three American coasts and in the mid, mountain and desert west.

What Zach’s head lacks in hair is made up for by the ideas and creativity that come out of it. He looks forward to using his eye for detail, worldly perspective, and varied skill set to evangelize the principles of freedom to America’s next generations.
