My Name is Ana. My most consistent work in the industry has been freelance, shooting wedding videos. After a lot of adventures in my early 20's i am now directing my focus into pursuing a career in Media (Film and TV) production. My extensive experience with hospitality management highlighted my strength in organisation and creative problem solving. Skills I would like to develop in the creative industry. Once I have set my sights on something i work tirelessly for it. I am happiest when I am busy. I am open, love pushing myself to try new things. I am kind, considerate and excited about life.

2016 - Presnet // In September '16 i returned to education to do a 1 year course that combines with my previous Higher National Diploma in Film production to give me a BA (Hons) Degree in Media Production Management. It has been a wonderful experience to return after a break and really fully appreciate the privilege of being in full time education. My decision to return came from my desire to now fully focus my energies into pursuing the career i have dreamed of.

2016 - Present // I am an Area Manager for an area for teenagers at a family festival. This role involves two separate 10 day camps. The job involves managing my team of 8 volunteers per camp. Ensuring they are all vetted before the camp commences. Designing and implementing a program of workshops and activities for the 40-60 teenagers aged between 15-19. It is a wonderful and fulfilling job.
2014- 2016 // I traveled to south east Asia and lived and worked on an island in Cambodia for a few months and then spontaneously moved to New Zealand. I worked various management jobs in the hospitality sector there for a year and then i traveled my way back to Ireland via the Pacific islands and south east Asia again.Traveling was a great lesson in myself, budgeting and stress management. For the most part i traveled hand to mouth and on my own

2012 - 2014 // I worked filming wedding videos and managing an Asian street food restaurant.

2009 -2012 // I did a Higher National Diploma in film production in dublin from at Ballyfermot College of Further Education (BCFE).
