Originally from London, Victoria is a self taught composer for Film & TV, she’s worked hard to build strong relationships with filmmakers and has respectively worked on up to 12 high end film productions, combining her own unique experimental style with contemporary, minimal classical elements to film music scoring.

In 2011, She won Best Composer at Underwire Film Festival for short film “First Bite” directed by Louise Marie Cooke. This led her to the opportunity of scoring her first feature film “The Liability” directed by Craig Viveiros and starring Tim Roth, Peter Mullan, Jack O'Connell, Talulah Riley among others. In 2014, she scored the short SIREN where she was awarded an emerging excellence fund from Help Musicians UK (formerly known as Musicians Benevolent Fund) to work with the Bergersen String Quartet for the film's score. She was invited to Berlinale Talents (as part of Berlin Film Festival) as a 2015 sound studio participant which had led her to compose for documentaries such as ‘Hong Kong Roof Top Rebels’ for Al Jazeera Media Network in 2016.  

In 2017, she scored for 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 score to the upcoming feature documentary “69” which is 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.

Because of her extensive professional experience in Film & TV, she was accepted and is now currently doing her masters in Composition for Screen at University of Edinburgh. Victoria was also accepted in the 2018/2019 edition of BAFTA Crew, and then received (followed by application) an all access pass to BAFTA Guru Live London, which she attended mid September 2018.
