Do you have an audience that's hungry for authentic and candid discussions about music career building, DAW-based music making, or video game music? If so, I'd love to come speak with them. I'm passionate about demystifying the process behind building a career in music. Let's talk finances. Let's talk sustainability. Let's talking building artistry.

"ZW's presentation was informative, well spoken, and engaging. I learned a lot and had a great time listening to his talk."

"Absolute tone-setting presentation for the audio community."
