Name

Wendy E. (Surface) Zachman

About

Born brandologist, marketing maven, graphically gifted, and a wonder with words, Wendy Zachman is a bit of an enigma. A baseball fanatic and a firearms aficionado, she is formally trained in the History of Art with a strong background in math and science. An adventurer, she has lived in Northern Virginia, Minnesota, Texas, Illinois, and Germany, among many other places, and recently moved from Oregon where she was known to give her two cents via industry rags as well as craft Leupold & Steven's social media from the ground up. Now managing the marketing efforts of the Duskin & Stephen's foundation, when she isn’t glued to her computer churning out copy and graphic design, you are likely to find her utilizing her free time throwing lead downrange, wandering battlefields, or simply with her nose behind a camera lens.
