The Interesting Life of Michael Zomber January 16, 2017

Michael Zomber has had a very remarkable career where he has been successful in a number of different areas. One of the things that he has become famous for is his work in the TV industry as a historical consultant. This work has been done primarily for the History Channel and A&E. Zomber will give interviews about various historical events or time periods that he is familiar with.

These interviews will then be edited and used in different documentaries that are produced by those two cable networks. Being on TV a lot over the past decade has made Zomber a celebrity of sorts. He has said that he did not take those jobs for the fame. He is simply passionate about history and he enjoys teaching people about it.

Michael Zomber has an impressive educational background. He was accepted into the University of Illinois where he studied both English and psychology. He has said that he decided on a double major because it would make him a more attractive candidate when he started to look for a job.

According to IMDB, Michael Zomber then got an English literature master’s degree from UCLA. Zomber briefly considered becoming an English literature professor. However, that idea quickly disappeared when he discovered his true calling. He went to a gun show and fell in love with antique weapons. He would soon start to collect them and study their history.

Collecting antique firearms soon became much more than a hobby for Zomber. It became one of his passions. He also started to assemble an impressive collection of authentic Japanese samurai swords. Zomber had been fascinated with the samurai lifestyle since he was a young boy.

He would do much more than collect the guns and swords. He would try to find out as much as he could about the history of each weapon. He would strive to identify where the weapons were made and the names of the previous owners. Some of this info was impossible to obtain.

Michael Zomber spends much of his time giving lectures about the topics he is passionate about. He is also the author of several fiction and non-fiction books.
