I am a 2009 graduate of St. Anthony High School where I was actively involved in CEO,clubs, and sports. After graduating I ventured my way to Champaign to study Business Administration. After only a semester at Parkland, I relocated myself to Charleston to continue my education at Eastern Illinois University. After a year at Eastern, I decided college wasn't for me. I then moved to Fort Lauderdale, FL where I began studying for my real estate licence. After getting my license I started investing in distressed South Florida real estate. After all the renovations were done and the units were rented, I wanted to move on to another passion of mine, Computers.
I decided to learn computer programming in beautiful San Diego, CA. While in San Diego, I attended Origin Code Academy and graduated in December 2015. After my time in California, I then moved back to Effingham where I started working at Premier Broadcasting. Computers and technology have always been a big passion of mine. When I was 12 years old I built my first desktop computer from scratch. I have tinkered with all sorts of technology since then and continue to do so to this day. Most of my hobbies revolve around nerdy things, such as drones, 3D printing, and keeping up with my personal website zakdietzen.com.
I am truly blessed to work with such an amazing team here at the radio station and I look forward to many more years bringing the Effingham Community the latest news, sports, and music!
