History

Born and raised in upstate rural New York, Zuckerman has been an avid guitar player since the age of thirteen and has had an interest in music since his early childhood. Later in his life, he got minor jobs in the music business such as shrink-wrapping CDs and eventually started working a gig at a mid-town Manhattan production studio. He graduated from the Berklee College of Music, Boston, with an interest in sound design with new technologies and subsequently traveled to the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts). It was there he met Benjamin Wynn, with whom he would later co-found The Track Team, and he subsequently earned his master's degree in Composition New Media; Zuckerman has returned to CalArts on several occasions to lecture and workshop new ideas. Zuckerman can play many instruments and frequently plays guitar for an LA funk band named Cousin Junebug.[1]

In 2008 he was nominated for a Golden Reel Award for Best Sound Editing in a Television Animation for his work on the episode "Sozin's Comet, Part 4: Avatar Aang".

Zuckerman has confirmed that he will return for new projects with Avatar Studios, but will not be working for Netflix's live-action adaptation of the original show.[2]
