Zach Briggs

After MHS graduation, went to school in Michigan with Miles Haeberle for a year, majoring in theater. Served a full time mission in Long Beach, California, (where I met my wife) (don't worry, we kept it professional!). Came home to Michigan, started going out with Liz (my wife), popped the question on top of the Sears Tower in Chicago, got married Sept. 25, 2004 in the Nauvoo, Illinois temple. Worked as a theater and music teacher for a year at a performing arts academy in Michigan, and then moved to Orange County, CA, to be near Liz’s family and finish school. Lived in the OC for four years, working as a voice actor @ Disneyland (an improv show doing the voice of "Crush the Sea Turtle" from the film Finding Nemo), performing in a traveling acting troop doing improv for elementary schools, acting in various community theater productions and occasional Hollywood commercials and voice-overs, and working as part of the management team for a melodrama theater in Long Beach. Additionally, I spent a month living in Costa Rica and Panama on a sea turtle/manatee conservation project in the jungle. Earned my BA in History from California State University Fullerton in December or 2009. Lived in Las Vegas for most of 2010, working as a guide for and LDS-owned mountaineering company.

Moved to Orlando, Florida, in November or 2010 to continue working for Disney: again as Crush, and now also as
a judge at the American Idol Experience, as Piper O'Bagley (a comedic bagpipe-player/street performer), as Morris Mulch (lead singer/harmonica-player of the classic rock band/landscaping company "Mulch, Sweat, and Shears"), and as Cletus Filmore (the cocky Hollywood movie director in the new Phineas and Ferb show). My wife is a pediatric nurse, does tap and Scottish highland dancing, and is foxy freak-a-hot redhead! We have one son, Ian – age 3, and a daughter, Molly - 18 months.
