Zac Clancy


I am a software engineer, disaster response specialist, and outdoor enthusiast living and working in Park City, Utah.

Since 2010, I’ve been responding to natural disasters and humanitarian crises as part of a non-profit organization, Global Disaster Immediate Response Team (DIRT), I helped start with a few friends. I’ve responded to incidents and run projects around the world, with locations ranging from the Philippines to New York City.

In Park City, I work as an engineer at Avatech, building outdoor-centric software APIs for a safer mountain community. We’re focused on providing users the most accurate backcountry data available. We want to help take some of the risky guesswork out of decision making.

I’m an avid backpacker and hiker. I love spending my time in the backcountry. Being a brand ambassador with PURINIZE allows me to combine my passions. I’m able to help develop water solutions for use after disasters, but also for backcountry pursuits.


Having one water purification solution for my life in the backcountry, and my work in disaster-relief makes things so much easier. Drinking water always has to be a consideration, but with PURINIZE, it no longer needs to be a worry for me.
