Hello, My name is Zach Ater and I am a US based ambassador.
My name is Zach and I currently live in Austin, TX. I was born in Dallas, TX but spent most of my life growing up in San Diego, before moving to Arizona to go to school at ASU. Since then I have joined the corporate life working for Schneider Electric. I currently work in National Sales but am pursuing a career in International Business and Sustainability through my company. We were just named number one in Sustainability and I look forward to being a part of the change that a more sustainable world will bring to so many around the world.
Growing up I was very fortunate in that my parents saw traveling as an important and necessary part of development and took me on many trips. By the time I was 11 years old I had already traveled to many countries around the world; Italy, Greece, Switzerland, Turkey, and Egypt to name a few. These trips really shaped who I am, how I interact with the world around me, and sparked my passion for travel. Since then I have added a ton more countries, places, experiences, and continue to add more every year. Whether I am traveling to a new country, a new state, or even a local spot I have never been to, I think that traveling is the single greatest thing someone can do to expand their knowledge of other cultures and perspectives on life.
This is a wonderful opportunity to work with Costamundo and I am very excited to be a part of it! I look forward to sharing my experiences with others and sparking that passion for travel that my parents instilled in me. Whether you are the kind of person to bounce between Hostels in Europe, free dive in the Caribbean, or spend a few nights in the wilderness with nothing but a backpack, I have many stories and insights to share to help you in your future travels!
