Web News Editor Zak started at The Ubyssey in August 2017 after he interviewed a prominent local artist and a neo-Nazi in the same week. His work at the paper has been disrupting his sleep schedule since. He's interested in student government, labour contracts, drug policy, and anything else that distracts him from the void. When he's not in the office, he moonlights as a student in the dual degree between Sciences Po and UBC studying International Relations and French.
