About Me


"Krajnyak sings with assurance and has a sweet rock voice that can register sincerity and emotion, but it is in his watchful, physical, discerning performance that he grabs your attention and respect."




Zack Krajnyak is an award-winning actor, performer, musician, writer, and teaching artist based in New York City. Hailing from Central Pennsylvania, Zack first came to the city to study at New York University, where he graduated with honors with a degree in Vocal Performance with an Emphasis in Musical Theatre.
