Welcome to my portfolio site. My name is Victoria and I'm happy to display my work.
My mother and father immigrated to the United States from El Salvador and Israel, respectively. I was born in Miami, Florida, moved to San Salvador, El Salvador and then moved to Los Angeles which I consider my hometown.
I received my B.A. from California State University Northridge with a major in general journalism and a minor in sociology. I studied international media in Uppsala, Sweden with an emphasis in gender in the media and most recently I received my masters degree from Syracuse University in magazine, newspaper and online journalism. Currently I work writing about crime, schools, government and human interest stories in Silicon Valley for Bay Area News Group. My work regularly runs in The Sunnyvale Sun, The Cupertino Courier and The Mercury (formerly The San Jose Mercury) in print and online at mercurynews.com
I enjoy writing, running, playing with Photoshop and InDesign, photography and supernatural television shows set in the Pacific Northwest.
