Julia Hoff is the Director of Production at NowThis, based in New York City. She was one of the first to join the team at NowThis and has played a number of roles at the media company, including technical directing, field producing, show running and post producing. Most recently, Julia directed and produced Apocalypse NowThis, the #1 science show on Facebook. The show focuses on different ways the world could end, with a tongue in cheek tone that utilizes real experts in their fields to prove or disprove theories. Her work branches across a multitude of issues and topics. A turning point in her career was covering gun reform legislation told through parents of victims, survivors and neighbors of the Sandy Hook massacre in the weeks before the 5-year anniversary. She has a passion for storytelling and lives for the opportunity to speak with and interview people who otherwise would not have a microphone to tell their story. Julia graduated Magna Cum Laude from Drexel University, where she studied film production. Julia Hoff is a 2019 Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice in the Americas grantees. She is working with Sari Soffer to report on feminist activists in Argentina.
