I'm Zac and I like making stuff, community events and the web.
I'm passionate about removing barriers for people. I'm trying to do this through things like education, accessibility, diversity and inclusion.
I love listening to music and going to gigs . I've been listening to Thundercat, Louis Cole, Tame Impala, Anamanaguchi and Tom Misch. I sometimes watch films ️ and own a stack of books I rarely read .
