Zach Custer grew up with the glory of the Rocky Mountains' Pikes Peak in his own backyard, back in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Stunning as the setting was, however, Zach found the winds blowing him South to Loyola University New Orleans, where he made an unbreakable bond with the people and culture of the Crescent City. After graduation, Zach felt the anxiety of the real world sinking in, so he did what any travel junkie 22-year-old would: flee to Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he experienced 9 glorious months of immersion in the intriguing Argentinian culture, while working, living, pinching pesos, and of course, traveling. Upon returning to the States, Zach based himself in New York City, where dreams of sharing his experiences and pursuing a career in writing have landed him the position of Deals Producer & Network Strategist at ShermansTravel Media. Recent Trip: Cancun, Mexico. Next Trip: Austin, Texas. E-mail:
