Zachary Walker Brown graduated summa cum laude in history from Samford University. While there, he served as Editor-in-Chief of the Samford Crimson newspaper. After college, Zach served as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Panjakent, Tajikistan. He then returned to his hometown of Nashville, Tennessee where he worked in software for a year before beginning law school at Belmont University College of Law. 

During law school, Zach has amassed significant experience and connections to the local government community. He has served as a judicial intern to the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals, worked on election law for a gubernatorial campaign and thinktank, and has conducted legislative research and tracking for the Tennessee Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Zach was the Executive Articles Editor for the Belmont Law Review, and his paper on sexting legislation was recently published in the Dartmouth Law Journal. 

He lives with his beautiful, sharp-witted wife and their three awful cats in West Nashville.
