Ana Yazdi-Head, Producer:

"Whacked" is Ana's first experience on a film set and it was a trial by fire!! Although she's an aspiring photographer, she has spent many years in the healing arts (she's a graduate of the New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics), she recently co-created a T.V. show that's been bought by HGTV and she's an upstart rap star. Multi-talented? You bet!! She grew up just outside of Washington DC in Virginia, and has traveled extensively across the United States photo documenting all of her trips.
