Hey, thanks for 
stopping by

I'm Sophia Sanders and, if you couldn't tell already, I'm a creative.

​I chose art direction because it's the perfect blend of art and practical storytelling while providing an exciting set of challenges with every project. Outside of advertising I enjoy food most people think is too sweet, nature and pretty much any body of water. In my free time, I love to wander around and find interesting places to spend my time whether it's a hole-in-the-wall local eatery or a new place to take a walk. 

 

I'm currently pursuing a degree in advertising at the University of Florida. After college, I hope to seize an opportunity in the creative side of advertising.
