I originally grew up in Kansas then migrated to Texas for college. One of the greatest things kids get to learn when growing up in a Kansas farming community is a relentless work-ethic.
I spent my late 20s and 30s working in the Dallas and Addison areas in the VC start-up, acquisition, and turnaround fields for a company named after my dad: Z-Acquisition Group. It's a high stress, high failure, and high risk industry; with the goal being to find one grand slam to get you to retirement. We have had some success and plenty of failure, my batting average was probably .250 with a little power, estimating an OPS of around .850.
In 2013 I met Lesya Sytnianska for the first time at the famous Kenny's Wood Fired Grill in Addison, TX, and the rest was history. We married in 2016 and have been blessed with two wonderful children.
My career path has adjusted due to the business of a family and the awful insertion of Covid-19 into this world. Global travel and high-risk start-ups are in my rear view mirror, and I am look forward to spending the next decade or so watching my kids grow up and trying to harvest some of the fruits of my labor. Fingers crossed....
