Hey, I'm Victoria!

Los Angeles, California

I'm a native New Yorker, born into a Greek and Italian family. I studied Creative Writing and Psychology, graduating from the College of Arts and Sciences at New York University. As a surivvor of gun violence, I use storytelling and production to illuminate the power of visceral emotion and sound for healing, carefully alchemizing the heart breaks of life into art. In my work, I aim to create an affinity of love, light and resonance for those who feel personally drawn to seek growth and find relief through the work. During the production of Greek Honey, an independent pilot I filmed in the fall of 2017, I went away for the weekend and found myself in the midst of the deadliest mass shooting in Modern US History. As much as I didn't want this incident to derail me from the path I was excitedly headed on with our pilot, I can't help but to find myself three years later, wanting to find my voice in fighting PTSD, survivor's guilt, flashback and discovering the meaning of self-love, and what it means to become your own warrior. I am making a short film called 10:04 to shed light on the human cost of mass shootings and mass violence, using my very raw, personal first-hand rebirth in this ongoing, heavy national conversation. I hope people find healing and connection in the work.
