Zac Thomas, Technician

Where do we begin with Zac...He is really from Lauisiana but he would tell you Scranton, PA.  He would also say that he has been here for FOREVER but if forever is 16 years then he has lived for two forevers!  He should try out for Jeopardy as he knows freakishly weird stuff.  His favorite color is green because he is enviromentaly sound.  Given the choice of CoCo Puffs or Reeses Puffs he would choose Reeses Puffs, but neither are his favorites.  He does have a cat named Highway and two dogs Macy and Marlin.  Zac is also a paramedic.
