About Zack

Zack Peter isn't your average green-juice drinking millennial. As a writer, he has published a total of four books, with work featured on Yahoo!, Men’s Health, Bustle, POPSUGAR, People, and more. In between collagen-martinis, you can catch his signature wit and gift-of-gab as host and producer of the hit weekly podcasts, #NoFilter with Zack Peter and #Adulting: Life Hacks to Get Your Sh*t Together.

His work extends far beyond entertainment, spending the past decade raising awareness and funds for autism, even serving as the Executive Director for Jenny McCarthy’s foundation, in honor of his brother, Ethan.

He also helped launch several successful events and wellness conferences around the country, including The Autism Education Summit (a three-day conference of over 700 guests, held annually in Dallas); An Evening with Donnie Wahlberg (a benefit concert held in St. Charles, IL in 2016 and 2017; raising a total of $1.4M in funds for charity); and The Elevated Summit (a wellness event series hosting some of the country’s top health experts).

He often works as a regular event host/moderator at various wellness and culture events throughout the country and covers an array of topics from buzzy health trends to pop-culture/celebrity news and gossip.
