Originally from London, Victoria is a self taught composer for Film & TV. She specialises in high end film productions, combining her own unique experimental style with contemporary, minimal classical elements of film music scoring.  

In 2011, she won Best Composer at Underwire Film Festival for Louise Marie Cooke's short film “First Bite”. This led her to the scoring of her first feature film “The Liability”, directed by Craig Viveiros and starring Tim Roth, Peter Mullan, Jack O’Connell and Talulah Riley among others.  

In 2014, she was awarded an emerging excellence fund by Help Musicians UK, which enabled her to work with the Bergersen String Quartet to score the short film “Siren". She was invited to Berlinale Talents (part of the Berlin Film Festival) as a 2015 sound studio participant, which led her to compose for documentaries such as "Hong Kong Roof Top Rebels" for Al Jazeera Media Network in 2016.   

In 2017, she scored the short film "Missed Conceptions", which was screened at BFI Flare 2018, the biggest LGBTQ+ Film Festival in Europe. One of her latest works is the soundtrack to “69” a feature documentary about the oldest gay leather club in Europe, directed by Rob Eagle, which premiered as part of Pride in London at Tate Britain in July 2018.  

Her extensive professional experience led to her acceptance on the University of Edinburgh’s MA in Composition for Screen. Victoria was also accepted in the 2018/2019 edition of BAFTA Crew and now BFI Network x BAFTA Crew 2019/2020.
