In a city like Brussels, the ability to communicate well, to think and reason clearly, to tell compelling stories are essential tools to stand out in a crowded political environment.

If the COVID-19 pandemic has permanently altered the health landscape in Europe, then as the EU shifts from crisis mode to recovery, coming to terms with, and positively impacting, this new environment will be one of the most important tasks of the coming years.

With a keen feel for politics, a solid understanding of the interests of different players, an ability to turn the morass of information into actionable intelligence, Zachary is well poised to make sense of this moment. He brings an outsider’s perspective to European politics, which enables him to question deeply held assumptions and approach topics with a fresh view.

With a varied background that includes work in television in New York City, Zachary appreciates the spirit of collaboration, and tries to approach his job with a similar flair of creativity as well.
