About me

My voice – your experience

For the doctor it is the healed person, for the confectioner a perfect celebration cake and for the scientist a groundbreaking new insight. For me it is to reach my audience with my voice. Since my school days I have enjoyed standing in front of groups, whether as a speaker, presenter or singer. As a coach in the school system, I never really felt at home and leading through the city is no longer enough for me. I used the time during the pandemic to expand my knowledge on topics like equality, feminism and diversity. I’m on fire for these topics, and out of that came my platform www.HerMusicWorld.com.

If I am to believe others, I am a combination of empathy, humor and creativity. And a doer. Don’t just think it, do it. These are my ingredients to contribute to positive social change.

I’m not moderating to tell you something. I want to experience something with you. Are you ready?

I specialize in the cultural and creative industries with particular expertise in Berlin and Brandenburg. Whether young or old, here we go.
My languages? German, English. And of course: Berlinish.

"Zoey is a refreshingly different presenter. The emphatic interaction and well-founded approach to the topics is always joined by good humor, positivity and joie de vivre, which spill over to the viewers*."
Nina, Hamburg
"Zoey is a special presenter. She manages to combine profound knowledge, honest interest and her natural joie de vivre in an authentic and engaging way. As a viewer, you are entertained and informed in the best possible way."
Ronny, Hamburg
Zoey is a little experience. When she narrates, it bubbles out of her in a fluffy manner and it is enormous fun to experience how she makes her favorite Berlin places and people ours, quick-witted and without great pathos. She packs her historical knowledge into interesting and funny anecdotes and in all the little Kiez stories you can feel her loving attachment to the city. As a native of Berlin, I am very glad that she and her work exist.
Eva, Berlin

I am on fire and passionate about supporting you in these topics:

How you can inspire audiences with an authentic and captivating performance in different contexts (e.g. pedagogy, culture, moderation).
How you can resolve conflicts in private and professional relationships and cultivate non-violent and appreciative communication.
Why it’s never too late to become an intersectional feminist* – for a healing path to yourself and a world of equality!
Explore how 20th century history influences our behavior around communication and relationships, and how transgenerational trauma continues to haunt us.


Since my childhood, I have been fascinated by the effect and variety of my voice. The power of classical singing had particularly impressed me. My grandparents played a big role in encouraging me on my musical path. As a teenager, I took advantage of every free opportunity to make music or sing. Many who experienced me on this path encouraged me and saw in me a diamond in the rough.

Coming of age, earning my first money in Berlin, I seized the opportunity and sought out a vocal coach to learn a healthy, classical vocal technique. To this day, I am deeply grateful to Verena Rein for her expertise and school.

Meanwhile, my vocal passion is jazz, interdisciplinary projects (ex. theater and singing), as well as fusion genres (neo soul, electro jazz, electro).

Mew Matou

a special jazz duo: our passion is a jazz that inscribes unpredictability with passionate fulfillment in a performance. 

Berlin Jazz FLINTAKestra

My vision for 2024: a music-making, mutually supportive community for Jazz-FLINTA* in Berlin. To make the jazz stages even more diverse and where I can use my voice.

Free projects

I love to dedicate myself to new interdisciplinary, musical projects (theater, performance, event) with an open mind and curiosity.

"Zoey has a very magical voice that comes from the heart and touches hearts. She sang at our wedding ceremony and many had goosebumps and teary eyes. It was truly a wonderful and unforgettable moment. Hey Zoey, so glad you exist! You are a powerful, creative and lively woman!"
Juliane und Markus, Belzig
Zoey's voice and expression was gorgeous and took everyone away. Wonderfully sung and arranged, a great atmosphere with her pianist! Great duo! Close to the audience and deeply entertaining!
