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.

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.[3]
