Collecting items as a hobby provides most people with a sense of satisfaction and enjoyment that is unique to that individual. One of these individuals, Michael Zomber, finds solace in collecting antique weaponry such as firearms, samurai swords and other infamous battle tested items. He has been in the hobby of collecting for over 40 years and has shared his experiences with others through publications in novels, film, and television series. Below is just a brief bio into Michael’s life as a collector.
As mentioned previous, Michael started his hobby nearly 40 years ago and instantly took to a historical approach when obtaining these items. His items each have a rich historical background which prompted an association with the History Channel show Tales of the Guns. It takes a look at infamous guns of certain time periods, guns that are prominent in other culture’s histories, and expensive weaponry. He has also produced fiction and non-fiction writes that have covered some histories of the samurai sword and other such weapons of the time periods.
As much as his love for guns and swords is evident, Michael also participates heavily non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to combat against violence and armed conflict. Groups he is associated with include, but are not limited to: UNICEF, Doctors Without Borders, and Amnesty International and Global Exchange. While his goals are to collect these unique items, he also knows and understands the potential dangers they possess and advocates for protection rights and activist groups.
Among all of these qualities, Michael has directed and produced a film by the name FLASH! This 2003 work is a completely different side from his hobby career and showcases a group of 8 different models traveling for a modeling project in California.
As one will find, Michael Zomber is a very accomplished and successful individual. Whether it is samurai swords or bikini models; the man does it all.
