“When I grow up, I want to be an inventor.” Not all childhood dreams come true; but for Zach Thesier, the aspiration to create has become a reality. After discovering industrial design as a freshman in high school through his passion for consumer electronics, Zach’s interests have expanded to encompass all areas of design. Zach views design as a single unit rather than separate parts, and understands the importance of design in people’s everyday lives. Zach strives to use what he knows to help people and to make a difference.
