I am a gypsy pirate, a romance artist trying to gently push the world towards a more natural and enlightened form of interaction between men and women, trying to make people see beauty for what it is and reach it more easily, and, along the way, trying to inspire a more elegant way of moving trough life.
I am immensely curious, charmed and fascinated, on an adventure, itinerant, having enormous fun in life, never needy, never attached to the outcome, never serious, but always sincere. I am a lover of beauty, in all its forms… art, in all its forms. I am a lover of life and its immense potential. I am a lover of women, and if your heart is sincere, you will understand exactly what that means.
I am seduced. And if you could see even one tenth of the beauty I see in a woman, you too would be seduced, you too would believe, you too would live your life surrounded by boundless beauty and grace.
A regular media commentator, he has been widely featured in the international press, and his early writings and concepts have heavily influenced today’s international “seduction community”. Zan is a frequent guest on radio and television and has been featured in numerous newspaper and magazine articles, including Macleans and Men’s Health, and has been a regular contributor to both Bobbi and UMM magazines.
Frequently featured as a guest and presenter in many parts of the world, he has never varied from his concept of a more “natural” approach to women, dating and life. Due to his wonderful ability to inform and inspire audiences toward excellence in all aspects of life, Zan’s seminars and events sell out immediately and have garnered impressive reviews in every city they have been held – Montreal, Toronto, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, London, Panama, Tokyo, Warsaw, Amsterdam, Bucharest and Cape Town, to name just a few. In addition, Zan is frequently invited to give lectures at colleges and universities around the world, including UC Berkeley, McGill University, Queen’s University, the University of Calgary, the University of Monterrey, and the Humboldt University of Berlin, among others.
And I think that, together with his unique philosophy and charisma, his elegant approach and his consistency are also very important factors in what made his name almost synonymous with a more natural and enlightened form of interaction between men and women.

Author Neil Strauss devoted an entire chapter to him in his New York Times bestseller The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists, calling Zan “…the undisputed heavyweight of the genre… in four years, he never once asked for advice, he only gave it”.
David DeAngelo (of Double Your Dating) has called Zan “an example of a true natural”.
Mystery (of VH1’s The Pickup Artist) has proclaimed “I want to be like Zan!”
The media has repeatedly called him “The World’s Greatest Seducer”. And in 2007, Zan played himself in the movie Let the Game Begin, starring Adam Rodriguez (of CSI: Miami), Thomas Ian Nicholas, Stephen Baldwin, Michael Madsen, Lisa Ray and Natasha Henstridge.

Empathy, sensibility, passion, curiosity and love are required for those who wish to extract the best from his work.
He teaches no trick, but those able to read will learn all of them. No lines, but teaches the source of all of them. No “how-to…” or “10 steps to…”, but it helps you find the ocean of serenity and harmony that exists within you and that can flow outward, can seduce everything you desire, including women.

Being a musician, I have over the years heard a few musical performances that I consider to be life enhancing, almost life changing, in their profundity and depth of soul. I can without a doubt rank Zan as having the exact same effect on me as that of listening to these giants of the music world that I have been fortunate enough to hear.
In fact, the very first thing I noticed upon entering the seminar room was the fact that there were four very lovely looking ladies sitting in the front row. This was refreshing. It was also fascinating to see these women taking notes, with a look of intense interest in everything Zan was saying.
Zan often said that he needed women in the room in order to really be inspired. And inspired, he was. It was clear that he was calibrating his words to their reactions, not in the sense that he was looking for their approval, but in the sense that he was creating a connection with them, as he explained his thoughts on the nature of seduction, relationships, love etc.
It truly was like watching a great violinist communing with the other members of a string quartet, instead of standing there trying to be the center of attention.
There was a time when I sucked with women, so then I became a pickup artist. Yeah, one of those ‘entertainers’ who did stupid mind games and had a trick or two up his sleeve. And surprisingly, it worked. But there was always something missing… It was never me. I always loved and was curious about women… But that whole ‘picking up women’ took out all the curiousity, all the excitement out of a conversation and interacting with women… It felt so forced, predetermined, almost manipulative…
And then I listened to your program, and it just really, really hit home. You taught me to not hide my love for women, and they love me for the better now.
So thank you for freeing me, for making me more real, more fun, honest, and well, more of a man. You said we should enjoy the interaction with the woman, being curious about her, and I found that within me. It was absolutely incredible and I just learned how to love women even more now. You turned me from a pickup artist into just an unapologetic woman-lover, and I never felt better. So thank you.
This has literally changed me over night. Forget the fact that things with women changed overnight – I remembered my mission and adventures of life again. Thank you for speaking exactly what I have felt within me for years…
Thank you, thank you, thank you! This finally awakened within me what none of the self help I have received for years could provide. It was like coming home and finding all of the excitement one had when they were 8 and no internal barriers or sense that something is off.

Your presence alone was infectous; after the workshop I wasn’t afraid to be myself and put myself out there. I have always adored women my entire life, now I’m not afraid to let them know that any more. The Weekend Intensive itself was definitely a life-changing experience…

It’s a mindset, it’s a lifestyle and it’s a higher form of interaction that is going to be the next step in the sort of ‘men’s movement’ that has been coming…
I find it so hard to put my thoughts into words. It is hard to explain how my game, and I as a person, have transformed for the better since meeting and listening to Zan…
I’m having women tell me all of the things that I once wish I could be told: that I’m so charismatic, that I’m irresistible, that I’m a seducer, that I’m fun, that I have an awesome energy. I couldn’t be happier with the way things are progressing…

Yesterday I finished watching your DVD series. Since English is not my first language, understanding everything clearly was not an easy task. I had to use a dictionary and rewind the DVD every few minutes. In the end when I finally finished watching and understanding all the material- it struck me- that this is exactly what I have been looking for, for a very long time. Because English is not my first language, I didn’t realize all the great wisdom after watching the first time. So I was very happy of my decision to watch it again with closer attention.
I’m 29 years old, good looking, smart and funny, but although I have all the good characteristics in my favor, I never understood how to truly attract women or make a woman fall in love with me.
I was never a jerk or a liar, and I had no intention of becoming one. I was beginning to think that I would never find “pick up” methods that I could relate to. Then, I received your DVD’s in my mail as a present from a family member of mine who lives overseas.
Finally, I realized- here is a man that knows what he is talking about. At last I have found great wisdom that will help me increase my success with women without the need to become a jerk, a liar or a manipulative guy- all the things that are not me. I realized that when I focus most of my energy on my personal adventure or quest in life, getting this or that girl, doesn’t seem the most important thing anymore.
They have really struck a chord in me. I share many of the philosophies that you have adopted and created for yourself. Looking back on my life, I’m amazed at how much I let external factors and limiting beliefs about myself dictate the direction of my life (including my interactions with women), and I have started to take steps to change that…
I think in modern society most people have absolutely lost touch with their humanity and live in a “box” of mediocrity, and there are many sociological and psychological factors that contribute to it… Considering how short life is, mediocrity just doesn’t cut it…
I have always wanted to be this way and I realised that it didn’t work (I was kinda lost in the self help, although i have gained much more from it) but now it’s great. I have such a congruency with your work, wow, it’s enormous.
I could write much more about you and your products but i will only write this: Thank you Zan, it’s good to have you here; Thank You. I have a feeling that you have changed my life… for better. Thank You for sticking around on Earth!”
I want to thank you, Zan, for one of the most amazing days I have ever had… Your mentoring program is an absolute phenomenon. I have gained more confidence in those two days I spent with you than from any other experience of my life. This has been the best investment in time and money I have ever made…”
