Victoria is a natural born storyteller and chief people connector. Born in Cold Spring Harbor, New York to a lineage of whalers and barrel-makers, raised by a fireman and nurse, and granddaughter to New York State’s first female Supreme Court Justice, Victoria feels she is part of the salt.
As such, her first job out of college was near the ocean in Bridgehampton where she was an editor for Dan’s Papers, a weekly magazine in the Hamptons.

Victoria left the East End to pursue writing and graduated with an MFA from Sarah Lawrence College in 2011. While there she honed her skills at applying the art of narrative to different mediums, including photography and film. She produced and directed “The Facebook Fix,” her first documentary film on the relationship between Facebook and narcissism.
Outside of editing, she has worked as a copywriter for Devito/Verdi, Poets & Writers, Aerosoles and Gildan. In the field of marketing, Victoria’s balance of creativity and management also led her to work in politics where she has served as a Campaign Manager and Communications Director for both Judicial and Legislative campaigns.
