Originally from Texas, Tiffany Hopkins moved to New Haven in 1996 to take a job as the props runner at Yale Repertory Theater. A chance meeting at an end-of-year party led to a seasonal job at the 1997 International Festival of Arts & Ideas, and that is where she has found herself every June since. In 2007, she joined the Festival staff year-round.

When not at the Festival, Tiffany is the owner and creative director of Solo-Me Films. She has produced video content for the Pop Culture Collaborative, the CT Book Awards, the New Haven Pride Center, the International Society for the Performing Arts, the Shubert Theater of New Haven, the Arts Council of Greater New Haven, Wesleyan University Center for Fine Arts, Prospect Theater Company, and The Hopkins School, among others, and her theater projection designs have been seen at Ivoryton Playhouse, Madhatters Theater Company, Regional Center for the Arts in Trumbull, CT, and Valley Regional Musical Productions.

She produced two pilot episodes of the TV series, Automobiles DeLuxe that aired on PBS member station CPTV in 2008 and served as primary videographer for interviews on the Emmy-nominated hit public television documentary, The Last Days of the Coliseum. In 2010, she fulfilled a lifelong dream when a series of her photographs were published in the New York Times.

Tiffany has an AD from Hill College in Hillsboro, TX, a BA in media production and an MA in journalism, both from Quinnipiac University.
