Zachary Solomon, Team Leader
Zach was born in Austin where he grew up surrounded by his enormous and slightly crazy 8-person family. In college he studied Spanish and Biology at Tulane University in New Orleans, and spent 8 months living in Argentina and Chile. After college Zach was awarded a grant by the Spanish Government to teach English in Spain, where he stayed for two years. During that time, you could find him fully clothed on the freezing beaches of Galicia, or wandering the city of Madrid in search of good Spanish tortilla. Zach was torn out of his Iberian romance by Baylor College of Medicine, where he struggles to study after spending entirety too much time playing Super Smash Brothers Melee (as Bowser) in the student lounge. After his first year in medical school, Zach went on a Global Health trip to rural Ecuador with Interhealth South America where he ran health brigades and worked on his medical Spanish.
