Intro

Sophia was born and raised in Flushing, Queens, where she began her career as filmmaker, directing her parents in scripted/doc hybrids before she knew that was even a thing. The pilot episode of WHO’S ANNIE?, a series she’s creating, co-writing and directing premiered at Slamdance 2023. Sophia was awarded the NY Foundation for the Arts ‘Made In NY’ grant, a finalist for the ScreeCraft Film Fund, accepted into The Gotham’s Episodic Lab, and invited to Gotham Week. Sophia is currently pitching a series she’ll be directing, created in collaboration with Jigsaw Productions. After years of working on series for Nike, Super Deluxe, Nylon, Genius, and Pitchfork, Sophia is now also directing a surreal cooking show, DANNY’S FOOD CORNER, starring queer comedian Lily Marotta (Celebrity Book Club Podcast). Sophia’s work has been screened at the Whitney Museum of Art, Hauser & Wirth, Abrons Art Center, the Giphy Film Festival, Anthology Film Archives, Contemporary Arts Center, The Queens Museum, Indie Memphis Film Festival, and MoMa. She has directed music videos for artists such as Paramore, Julien Baker, The National, Interpol, Yeasayer, and Junior Boys.
