Zack Ellis

After recording his own parents recording their life stories, Zack Ellis was moved to create TheirStory — an oral history platform. Over 30 communities and institutions, including the Council of American Jewish Museums, National Library Board of Singapore, The Black Frontline, and Chickaloon Native Village in Southcentral Alaska, use TheirStory to streamline the process of collecting, preserving, and engaging with the stories of the individuals that make up their communities. Before TheirStory, Zack worked in technology startups ranging in industries from math education, home healthcare, and API management. Outside of work, Zack enjoys rock climbing, coaching wrestling, and comedy sketch writing.
