Zach Morgenstern was born in Ithaca, NY. Though he moved to Toronto at the age of three, he picked the Yankees over the Blue Jays due to his loyalty to his roots, his desire to be different, and growing up with movies and books set in New York, like Oliver and Company. Also a singer-songwriter and film critic, Zach is a jack-of-all trades eager to bring his creative passion to telling the story of his favorite team.
