Zac graduated as a Sports Therapist from the University of Worcester before staying on in the team in a technician role. He committed himself to gaining as much experience as possible during his studies, finishing with three times the required placement hours logged. Zac took placement opportunities in professional rugby and cricket (Worcester Warriors RFC and Somerset CCC), semi-professional rugby and football, and amateur and youth rugby and football. Zac also took an opportunity to work in disability sport during 2018, with placements with the England Visually Impaired and England Learning Difficulties cricket teams. This wide variety in experience gained whilst studying has enabled Zac to become a well-rounded and knowledgeable graduate.

Shortly after graduating Zac, set up his own sports therapy clinic and provided pre-season cover for a variety of local semi professional football teams and rugby 7s matches. Zac currently mainly works with kickboxers, martial artists and rugby players.
