He began his career by uploading funny animated videos on Newgrounds website, his first video “Tribute to Eatler” on the platform in November 2008. He was enthusiastic about posting videos on his platform and when he noticed that his popularity was skyrocketing, he created a YouTube channel and uploaded his first video entitled “How to Become a YouTube Famous Vlogger,” a parody on various then-famous YouTube stars that became a huge success and even surpassed a million views. He uploaded funny and captivating animated videos such as “Osama Bin Laden Death Footage (Real)” on his channel in 2011, which increased his popularity significantly.
As his fame increased, Zach collaborated with other famous YouTubers such as Chris O’Neil, known to many as OneyNG, to create an animated series named “Hellbenders” that revolved around the story of two personalities, Zach and Chris, who loved going on crazy adventures together. The show was a success, and played a significant role in increasing the number of Zach’s subscribers.
Zach rose to prominence after he joined the SleepyCabin multimedia group, that consisted of Spazkid, Ricepirate, OneyNG, JohnnyUtah, StamperTV and Niall Murray, and launched a podcast entitled “SleepyCast,” ON which they would discuss random multi-dimensional topics based on questions that were raised by their fans.
While in the group, Zach liked talking about the Nazi Regime, Jewish people, Adolf Hitler, and the Holocaust, and often made jokes portraying Hitler as a good person. This caused an uproar among his fans, who took his jokes negatively, but he ironed things out and later regained their attention. The funny YouTuber also liked addressing unsystematic ‘what-if’ scenarios, and stood out in the podcast due to his voice, which fans described to sound stuffy and nasally. On top of this, Zach didn’t show his face whenever he was uploading anything on social media. Instead, he used an animated photo of himself, which raised curiosity among his avid followers about his facial appearance.
The SleepyCabin existed for around five years, from 2014-2019 before it was dissolved.
Zach didn’t give up his career, but instead started a podcast entitled ‘Schmucks’, and hosted guests most of whom are currently famous YouTube stars, including JonTron, VSause’s Michael Stevens, and h3h3’s creator Ethan Klein.

Zach has made several voice-overs, including Ity in the Netflix’s stand-up comedy “Seth Rogen’s Hilarity for Charity.”
He is a director, writer and producer, who created the animated series “Smiling Friends” (2020), which was broadcast on Adult Swim.
