Zachary Forrest y Salazar is a software engineer, photographer, and poet. Born in Missouri and raised in Kansas, he somehow found himself in Santa Barbara, California, and called it home.

As a software engineer, he's proven himself as a technical leader for companies like Slack, Sonos, and GoToMeeting. He's been traveling the world since May 2023 and will seek to re-enter the workforce in June of 2024.

He writes about poetry, software engineering, and travel—things which don't seem related, but are.
