At the age of six, Zach's vision started to deteriorate due to an inherited disorder known as Juvenile Retinoschisis or X-Linked Retinoschisis. The disorder, which is primarily found in young males and effects one in 5,000 to 25,000 individuals, rendered Zach almost completely blind by the time he was eight. Today, Zach is totally blind. He has no sight having suffered a number of additional complications, such as retinal detachment during his battle with this macular disease.
Not one to let challenges stand in his away, Zach is currently training in boxing and Muay Thai. His first boxing bout was a huge success, he hopes to one day inspire others to follow their own dreams.About Zach
