Hi! My name is Zach Welden. I live in Tulsa Oklahoma and am currently employed as a Land Regulation Specialist at INCOG in downtown Tulsa. I served in the U.S. Air Force for six years, and currently hold degrees in Economics and Chinese Studies from DePaul University in Chicago. I’m curious and data driven with interests in Photography, Web Design and Web Site Creation, Writing and Blogging, Language Learning, Traveling, and Political Analysis.

Having lived in and visited many countries around the world, I have a unique appreciation for the multitude of peoples, places, and cultures that span the globe. Each time I set foot in a new location I learn something new about myself and the world around me.  As a result traveling has become something of an addiction for me.

In my spare time after work at INCOG I run a small side business as a headshot photographer serving the Tulsa area. I also write and blog on a number of different topics, including personal finance, language learning, politics and policy, economics, and reviews of recently read books. Additionally, I have a YouTube channel where I document my progress in learning Chinese. Below you can browse through a few of the projects that I’m working on.
