In case you have been wondering...

If you have been reading my blog lately (which you probably haven't given my posting frequency), you might be wondering to yourself, "the silent 'h' in Zach has been a little too silent lately. What's going on in his world?" Sometimes I even wonder about the same thing.

The biggest, life-changing event of the recent past has been the birth of my baby girl. She is now 5 months old, in case you were wondering.

5 months! How did that happen? She is the cutest and happiest little person I know. She is also channeling her little dinosaur friend's energy this Halloween (tomorrow).

I'm breezing through the last several months. Anyone that feels they need more info, just hold tight and I'll try and keep you more updated. Besides, there will definitely be more things to come about with this little dino.

This Fall, my wife, 11-week old girl and I bravely moved down to Arizona. I started a DMA in Composition at the University of Arizona. It has been a while since I have been completely immersed in musical activities. I jumped on the Electroacoustic music class in my first semester and have loved getting back into this unique musical and compositional world. Below is a quick, little music concrete piece that I composed. Enjoy!

The Newest Additions

This Christmas, I introduced two new members to my photography collection. First, I would like you to meet my new tripod, in all of its carbon fiber glory.

I have been wanting a tripod for a long time, ever since the last one that I stole from my parent's ancient camcorder broke. And it's carbon fiber!!! What's not to love about that?

The next member of my photography collection is very special to me. I have been eyeing new lenses for years now, just to be disappointed by extravagant price tags. I think that Canon felt my long draught in purchases and decided to take corrective action. I give you the EF-S ultra wide 10-18mm IS STM.

I absolutely love how much I can fit into a picture. This lens came just in time for me to take some pictures of some of the other things that I love. See for yourself.

(Mmm.... Jaguar F-Type. I need to fit one of these in my garage. The crackle that comes from the exhaust during a downshift is such a heavenly sound)

(Audi A7. My personal favorite sportback. I'm going to need a very large garage)
