Hello. My name is Zach Sands. I have a PhD in American Culture Studies, an MA in Film and Literature and a BA in Film Production. 

I am an interdisciplinary scholar of media and culture with specializations in screenwriting and American film comedy. I am also a professional writer, musician and filmmaker with over thirteen years of experience teaching college courses in English and Film Studies.
