He and his wife, Elaine, currently reside in Durham with their son, Elliot, and their yellow lab, Paige.

Dr. Zukerman is also a seasoned blues guitarist! After graduating from college in 2006, he spent several years in Chicago playing with multiple bands at some of the most historic blues clubs in the city!
