"For the past two years, I've been working with Zack Marks on a variety of projects. He is exceptionally bright, diligent, creative, and innovative. He knows the rapidly evolving world of social media and knows how to present complicated ideas in ways people can comprehend them. He single handedly (and against great odds) organized and conducted an important public symposium at his university on the issue of the right to know about cell phones. He's testified before public hearings and founded the California Brain Tumor Association. I've written about Zack in my new book. His family is an inspiration. Zack knows how to work within system constraints and how to change them. He is also a mensch. Please know that I recommend him most highly."

"Zack is an extraordinarily capable young man who I have seen carry out several complex programs to completion without a hitch and each had a stellar result."

"Zack is well organized, thoughtful, conscientious and very hard-working. After being appointed to the Pedestrian Safety Advisory Committee with only one year of service, he was voted in as Chair. That means he had the confidence of the entire committee. I believe this young man will do well at anything to which he sets his mind."
