Zac is the middle child of loving parents who have always tried to provide their children with financial security, as well as strong religious boundaries and a good work ethic. It worked… for the most part. Zac’s older brother is a successful businessman and his younger sister is about to complete a Science degree. But Zac found himself on the wrong side of the law in his early twenties.
The growing and selling of marijuana was enough to put him behind bars for six months and teach him the greatest lesson of his life – all actions have consequences. His time behind bars also resulted in him losing the love of his life – Natalie Davison. They’d met at uni where Zac was completing a teaching degree, and Natalie was studying Psychology and Education. They were inseparable and everyone believed they’d be together for life.
Zac lives life to the fullest, but when he loves, he loves deeply and without hesitation. So why did Natalie and Zac break up?
His time in prison coincided with her graduation from uni and her moving away to take up a counseling position. Zac was left with a terrible decision – follow her and give up his career, or stay and finish university. Zac is no quitter, so he completed his degree and began work as a prison education officer, before later moving into a less dangerous career, teaching at Summer Bay High School.
He rekindled his relationship with Natalie, but was left devastated when she left the Bay in search of her mother.
We learnt more about Zac’s extended family when his sister-in-law Hannah arrived in the Bay, asking him to help her free their twin niece and nephew - Evelyn and Oscar - from a cult, called Serenity Lodge The twins had been brainwashed by the controversial camp, which they lived at with their father Ethan.
Zac organised for Evie and Oscar to be rescued after they found out Oscar was being beaten up, but Evie returned to the organisation, worried about leaving her father behind and still believing in what the cult stood for.
To concentrate on raising the twins when they free Evie once again, Zac has moved in with Hannah and Oscar.
