Agency Director Bill Giofu brings many years of experience and success to his piloting of Sophia Models International to a premier reputation in the industry. Sophia Models International was started by Bill Giofu, who has been in the Modeling and Acting business since 1986. As a model, Bill started his career in Regina, Saskatchewan and relocated to Calgary, Alberta in 1988. From Calgary he launched his local career and then moved on to the international markets. Bill modeled in Canada, the United States, Europe, and Asia. He has also acted in over 40 television commercials, videos, and film productions. Over half of the productions were shot in the international markets.

In 1996 Bill, along with the owner of Mode Models Int., opened the office of Mode Models Calgary. As the Agency Director, he developed it into the most successful modeling agency in Western Canada.

Wanting to establish a more stable and honest company, Bill started Sophia Models International. Bill draws on his experience in the modeling, film and television world, and passes that experience on to the models that want to work and succeed in the industry as models and actors.

With connections in the international and local markets, Bill successfully promotes the highly sought- after Alberta/Canadian Models. With Bill Giofu at the helm, along with the team of agents at Sophia Models International, we are striving to be the ultimate agency in the modeling industry. With some of the most talented individuals and models in the country, we continue to be at the top of our game in Western Canada.
