My Experience

July 2020 to present
Jamkazam

Adapting to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic and thus the inability to rehearse music in person, I’m collaborating with the California-based male vocal ensemble, Men in Blaque, to explore the application Jamkazam: an online platform made for real-time rehearsing and recording. Our accomplishments include weekly rehearsal sessions hosting up to 12 singers alongside the development of studio-quality recordings.

I act as the Digital Media Manager and Web Developer for the music group, zanadi. I actively work on the development of our visual brand for the group and our content. I also schedule releases alongside creating and maintaining campaigns. We currently have 20 thousand followers across our social media platforms, average 100 thousand views per music video, and attract 400 unique visitors per month on our website. I am also the lead vocalist and music producer/engineer.

January 2020 to present
Men in Blaque

As a member of the California-based male vocal ensemble, Men in Blaque, I  have taken on the responsibility of maintaining their website. The content includes a gallery, a catalog of music, and recent updates pertaining to the group. I turned their existing logo into a vector to make it look cleaner. I use WordPress as the platform.

May 2016 to present
Zachary Aldana

Following successful music opportunities, I have been developing a digital presence as a music artist. In this four-year pursuit, I have created and maintained four website layouts, a social media presence with over 30 thousand followers, and content that has accumulated over 1 million views and interactions. I have also averaged 200 thousand views per music video and attract 1 thousand unique visitors per month to my website. My debut album, thank u, next (originally by Ariana Grande), peaked at number 6 on Audiomack’s Top Pop Albums chart.

October 2018 to June 2019
Identity Narrative

I acted as the Social Media Specialist for Ililewa Companies’ subsidiary fragrance company, Identity Narrative. I produced content for their social media accounts, taking into account themes representative of individual scents, observed holidays and events, and popular trends. I maintained strong communication with the marketing team to adapt future content based upon metric reports.

June 2013 to June 2015
Choirs @ UC Irvine

During my time at the University of California, Irvine as a music student, I became the Public Relations Chair for the Choirs @ UC Irvine, a student-run organization. I created and maintained the organization’s website. I also digitally and traditionally marketed our organization and advertised local and international events and performances. In addition to my Public Relations position, I was also Choir President.
