Julia Hoff

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.
