At the age of 15, Zimmerman was invited to join the Bradenton residency program and the Pasco, Washington native relocated to Florida to join the USSF's flagship academy.
Zimmerman's efforts in the 2005 U-17 World Cup led to a trial at Hamburger SV, where he eventually signed his first contract.
The forward had a successful spell with the HSV reserve squad, notching nine goals in 45 games in the Regionalliga Nord.
Hamburg's first team proved to be a difficult nut to crack, so the search for more playing time in top-flight soccer brought the striker to Austrian Bundesliga newcomers SV Kapfenberg in August 2008. Often used as a wide midfielder, Zimmerman had a solid debut season before falling out with the management over contract issues after one year at the club.
In January 2010, Zimmerman moved back to Germany, joining Mainz's reserve squad. The youngster, a regular winger by this point, would go on to spend a season and a half with Mainz II.
In the summer of 2011, Zimmerman joined newly-promoted SV Darmstadt 98 of Germany's 3rd Liga.
Zimmerman was a member of the 2005 U-17 World Cup team. He was also called to the 2007 U-20 World Cup as an injury replacement for Johann Smith.
