Zach Sokol is a writer, editor, and producer, based in New York.
From early 2017 to July 2020, he was the Managing Editor and Features Editor at MERRY JANE, Snoop Dogg’s cannabis and culture publication. Previously, he was an editor and writer at VICE, as well as The Creators Project.
Sokol’s writing and photos have been published in a number of online and print publications, including Playboy, Art in America, The Paris Review, FADER, i-D, Penthouse, The Village Voice, and more.
