WELLcome Home, Zack Slabotsky!

We're excited to continue our monthly feature highlighting someone awesome who has recently moved back to Metro Detroit after adventures away!

This month, we'd like to (re)introduce you to Zack Slabotsky!


TW: You recently returned to Metro Detroit after spending some time away. What brought you back?

ZS: First and foremost, I have the chance to do what I love and work with my dad as a financial advisor. It's awesome to have helping friends become my job. Secondly, it's been really exciting watching Detroit's revival from afar, and I wanted to contribute and be closer to the action. Lastly, it's been really nice living closer to my family and the friends I grew up with.

TW: Where did life take you before you returned home?

ZS: I spent seven years in NY, first upstate for undergrad at Cornell, then in Manhattan for three years. After New York, I came most of the way home, spending two years in Ann Arbor for grad school. Most recently, I lived in Austin, Texas for a couple years. Both NYC and Austin were incredibly fun and exciting places to live. Austin in particular felt like a two-year vacation; it's definitely worth a visit for anyone who hasn't been. I'm happy to share restaurant and tourist recommendations with anyone going.

TW: What fictional place would you most like to travel to (and why?)

ZS: I'm a huge Game of Thrones nerd, so I'd have to see Westeros. My sister Annie and I actually visited the location in
