Since joining Portland Monthly’s staff in 2010, Zach Dundas has covered amateur rocketry, retro gambling, Oregon’s flexible romantic leanings, and mysterious kebabs, among many other subjects. He edits narrative features and service packages, as well as the design-focused Lookbook blog. In 2013, his work for the magazine landed a trio of Society of Professional Journalists awards. Along with Rachel Ritchie, he manages the editorial department—or it manages him.
Zach got his journalistic start as the “calendar boy” at Montana’s Missoula Independent before working as a reporter and editor at Willamette Week. These days, he fills his ample free time with contributions to Monocle and other magazines, and is the author of two books, including the forthcoming The Great Detective: The Amazing Rise and Immortal Life of Sherlock Holmes. He’s got a wife, two kids, and an ailing soccer career.
