When Zach Davis isn't getting lost in the mountains, he is hustling as Tech Cocktail's Marketing Director from Boulder, CO. He is the author of Appalachian Trials,, a book chronicling the mindset necessary for thru-hiking all 2,181 miles of the Appalachian Trail, a feat he accomplished in 2011. Follow Zach on Twitter: @zrdavis.

Zach received his BBA in Marketing from the University of Wisconsin – Madison School of Business. Several minutes thereafter, he was on the road headed West to take a job working in the front office for the San Diego Padres. He has since worked as a self-employed digital marketer and authored Appalachian Trials (endorsed by Tim Ferriss).

Zach spends his little free time enjoying: non-fiction books, tea, hiking, Chicago sports, traveling, concerts, and conquering fears.

Zach enjoys talking in the third person.
