Zach's love for musical theater began in a high school drama class while he was working on an original production of Pilgrim's Progress. One day during rehearsal, he started playing a song he had written. The teacher (Cathy Mays) was so moved by the music that she realized the show should be written as a musical. And Zach's song became the opening of CTP's Pilgrim. Zach contributed additional songs to Pilgrim as well as Pilgrim (Her Story) and Esther.
Zach and his wife Stephanie live in Virginia with their two young children.
Susan lives with her husband Phil in Nashville, TN.
