So the power is S=VI*=ZI^2.
the question is whether V=ZI* or just ZI. Using V=ZI when I calculate the voltage i get a negative answer. Thanks!

Why would V = ZI* ? Once you have the complex Z and I, the complex V should just be the product of those two. There are times that you use the complex conjugate of a quantity, but I wouldn't think you would use it here....
