Zach Whitman (Left) is a poet/performer/creative artist based in New York City. He’s been moonlighting as a server for the last ten years. He is also a co-founder and co-editor of 86 Logic. Zach’s poetry has been featured on three collaborations with candle designer Thompson Ferrier. From bridges to subway stations, Zach’s words can also be found on stickers citywide. On stage his audience involvment sets him apart from traditional spoken word poets, while on page you can find him in collaborations such as Poem Wars’ Bloom.    

Mike Ferrin (Right) is a co-founder and co-editor of 86 Logic. Born just outside of Chicago, he now lives and works in Astoria, Queens. Mike has spent time at just about every job possible in the service industry and though it’s been years since he hung up his chef coat, his heart has never strayed far from his back-of-house roots. His enthusiasm for sausage is unmatched. He has no doubts, that if God exists, his fingers must surely be made of bratwursts. His thumbs would dispense mustard – God’s thumbs not Mike’s.
