Zach Marks was born on June 2, 2000 to Sarah and Darren Marks in Boca Raton, FL. He is the second oldest of six children. Early on, Zach was a quiet child with a wild imagination, who developed a love of surfing, skating and motocross. He also loved to attend his dad’s business meetings and marketing events, and once he discovered social media, he couldn’t get enough. By the time Zach was 10 years old, he had developed a strong interest in computers, technology and business. He was also registered as a full time online student at Florida Virtual School.
In late 2011, after being kicked off Facebook twice by his parents, Zach set off on the biggest adventure of his young life - the creation of Grom Social. Transforming obstacle into opportunity, Zach followed his dream of designing a website where kids can connect and express themselves in a safe, fun, environment that also gives a voice to his desire to help stop bullying, encourage social responsibility and healthy, active lifestyles.
Zach is a comedian at heart who dreams big and enjoys making ideas come to life. Grom Social keeps him very busy but he always makes sure he has time for school, friends, surfing and just being a kid.
