Michael Zomber, born in Washington D.C is a man who has faced a lot of adversity in his life. He is an author, filmmaker. Historian and collector. He has collected antique arms and armor for most of his life. He has a particular knack for Japanese swords and “Bushido” (Japanese for the way of the warrior). To that passion, he has made a documentary named, “The Soul of the Samurai.” He is a story teller at heart and has written a few novels including Park Avenue, A Son of Kentucky, Jesus and the Samurai and Shogun Iemitsu. He is an avid student of history which is acknowledged in each and every of his novels.
His passion for arms and knowledge of history has granted him an appearance on the History Channel’s Tales of the Gun Series which includes episodes on Guns from the Orient region and America. His knowledge of the history of arms is acknowledged all over the world. His collection includes guns used in various battles including the Civil War.
Michael Zomber attended the University of Illinois where he studied Psychology and English Literature. His love of literature grew after his undergraduate studies, and he went back to school at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) where got his Master’s Degree in English Literature. Michael has his company called Renascent Films LLC whose main work is producing films such as his documentary, “Soul of the Samurai.” Though it may seem ironical, Michael Zomber is a huge anti-war proponent.
A man with a vast collection of weapons and with extensive knowledge does not fit your typical anti-war campaigner. He supports various organizations that campaign for world peace such as Antiwar.com and the Randolph Bourne Institute. He also supports the Doctors Without Borders Foundation which performs aid missions all over the world by making donations and making his support known.
Michael and his wife have two children, a son, and a daughter. They live just outside Philadelphia along the Chesapeake Bay.
