There are few people who are more respected than Michael Zomber in the world of collecting. Michael has made himself into one of the greatest authorities in the United States when it comes to Japanese samurai swords and antique firearms. However, Michael did not plan for his life to end up like this. He started out as an average kid from a regular family. However, he began to realize the importance that academic excellence could have in his life. This made him start to study harder than ever before.
According to CrunchBase, Michael eventually gained entry into the University of Illinois. He took on a double major. His two degrees were in English and psychology. He was not exactly sure what he was going to do with both of his degrees. He eventually decided that it would be in his best interests if he went back to school instead of entering the job force right away. Zomber attended UCLA where he earned an English literature master’s degree.
Zomber was encouraged by his wife to try his hand at writing the screenplay to a feature film. The idea to write a screenplay eventually changed into a documentary. He decided to make his documentary about samurai warriors and the lives that they led hundreds of years ago in Japan. This was a very ambitious project. However, it was a subject that Michael was very passionate about. Therefore, he put all of his time and energy into it. “The Soul of the Samurai” was praised by many prominent critics upon its release.
Zomber has a collection of samurai swords that several people have offered to buy for very large sums of money. He has several rare pieces that a few museums have expressed some interest in owning. However, his samurai sword collection pales in comparison to all of his antique guns. Michael is such an expert when it comes to antique firearms that he is frequently sought after to be interviewed by important TV networks. It is accepted by most of the American media that nobody in the United States knows more than Michael Zomber about antique guns.
