  • Past Work

    Highlights from my work. 

    Faire's Small World Video Series

    For the holidays in 2023, I had the good fortune to partner with the Faire social team to start a series about the merchants and makers of Faire. In this, the inaugural episode, we meet Guoda from OVO Things Candles in Lithuania and Jen from the Shop Senti in Edina Minnesota. The two have been working together across the globe for over 3 years and never met in person, this is their story.

    Mill Brand Launch

    In 2022 and 2023 I had the great pleasure of helping a climate focused start up hardware brand launch from zero to live! I was brought on as the only producer on the marketing team and I built out process, systems and vendor teams to execute on a completely integrated launch campaign in just 5 months and it all went live in January 2023. In this sizzle reel I show you the brand launch film, the product renders, and some of the lifestyle photography. This is just the tip of the iceberg of what I produced. We built out a robust asset library , a set of trusted vendors and a system for finding and making assets for a brand that had nothing at the start. Assets included: Illustration, Lifestyle Photography, Studio and Product Photography, 3D Renders, and of course video.

    Calm: Daily Move

    In 2021 I helped launch and oversee the structure for Calm's first foray into daily video. We have now produced over 158 episodes of mindful movement for the app with topics ranging from dealing with stress, gratitude and kids movements.

    Calm: Meet your instructor - Lama Rod Owens

    With these sets of videos we introduced our audience to the amazing meditation instructor, Lama Rod Owens. We got to spend the day with him and his mother and learn about how he became a buddist meditator and how he harnesses self care into activism. The shoot was a mix of remote and on-site production.

    Calm: Breathe Into It with Shawn Mendes

    Shawn Mendes worked with Calm to create a first of its kind wisdom series and here he promotes that series and what it means to him personally. As the EP I was involved from ideation to completion. All shot during the pandemic with COIVD protocol.

    Doorbells around the world

    A legendary company only goes IPO once and I was able to produce the IPO film for Airbnb. A global spot shot remotely over 12 days during the COVID Pandemic, this project was a production miracle made thanks to an unbelievable production team in house and a great production partner. This spot aired on financial TV networks in the US and during the Nasdaq bell-ring livestream globally.


    The founders at Airbnb were adamant that hosts are what power our company and we were lucky enough to highlight a host in every timezone. This is one of the best projects I ever produced and I am so very proud of the results.

    Airbnb Plus, Host Stories Series

    After launching Airbnb Plus, I became the lead producer embedded within the Plus product team, developing content and marketing projects just for Plus. From 2018-2020 we created a series focused on the incredible hosts found in the Plus community and shined a light on their talent for hospitality and design.


    Using my documentary and television background along with the talent of my creative team we found incredible hosts, and told their stories in a variety of ways.

    2016 Election on Twitter

    During the 2016 election season voters, pundits, candidates and the world turned to Twitter for news. We at Twitter tried to ensure that the conversation kept happening on the platform in a safe and open way. I worked with the live studio team to produce debate teaser videos, debate wrap up videos and this longer form doc-style video created during the first debate from a variety of voices in the political space.



    Bose Superbowl, Fantracks

    Working with the great people at MAS: Music & Strategy, I was the Supervising Producer on the production side, managing the music team and the video team to make this amazing project came to life. In 5 weeks we had created over 20 videos and 24 original pieces of music. On the video side we worked with Bindery to pull off this great feat.


    We collaborated with a stellar team at 360i and really proved out that Bose is about great sound, no matter what genre of music.

    Delta Photon Shower

    Winner of the 2014 D&D Yellow Pencil for innovative use of technology this project proved that airlines can be committed to their passengers health. Jet lag is the one issue that plagues our most frequent of flyers. Using Oxford Neuroscientist Russell Foster’s groundbreaking research, we invented the first ever Photon Shower. A remedy for jet lag, the Photon Shower uses Foster’s research on a photoreceptor in the eye. When introduced to spectrum-specific light for a set time, the receptor resets the body’s internal clock. The Photon Shower is customized to each user based on the user’s distance, direction, and duration of travel. The result was a way to highlight and promote the many ways Delta is committed to bettering sleep.

    Soco's Comfortable Weather Guy

    In 2013 I produced this integrated digital campaign for Southern Comfort. Introducing a new way to get your weather, see your favorite speedo wearing Southern Comfort drinking man, doing his thing in the rain, snow, wind and of course, the sun on comfortableweatherguy.com. He'll show you the weather across the globe or what's happening in your city. If it's snowing where you are, it's snowing on our guys- he's comfortable in any environment.

    Victoria is a very talented and motivated producer, and was a joy to work for the several times I have. She is a very reliable and easygoing go-to person that I hope to continue working with in the future.

    Adam Wohl

    Executive Creative Director

    Lifesaver. Glue. Mortar. These are the words that come to mind when I think about Victoria. But those do an injustice, because Victoria is so much more than a project manager or a producer. She’s been the de-facto office manager, handled accounts a la AE, handled a great deal of finance, but also played an integral role in creative concepting, running ideating sessions with the creative staff and proposing creative solutions that we’ve run with and sold through. I can’t remember what the agency was like before her. I don’t think I want to.

    I have utilized the professional services of Victoria on numerous occasions over the past five years. I am extremely impressed with Victoria's' technical knowledge and her ability to produce, direct and edit our various event video production needs. She always makes the whole video production process easy and seamless; from scripting through filming to final edited program, and her efforts always exceed my expectations. Victoria is a wonderfully creative professional and I absolutely enjoyed working with her.I highly recommend Victoria and her skilled team for any video production needs you might have."

This experience fueled her passion for cause oriented work and it has driven her to find projects and companies that align their values with their output.

There she got all her experience in advertising working at the legendary W+K and then joining Marty Cooke and Steve Wax at their own boutique strategy/creative agency and becoming an EP and partner there, after 3 great years working with CMOs, NGOs and other great clients they closed the shop and moved on to other work.

Then as the EP for Calm she helped launch marketing campaigns as well as Calm's first foray into daily video with the series called The Daily Move.
