Actress , Screenwriter, and Filmmaker


Victoria comes from a very close Italian-American family in CT near New Haven. She grew up eating the best pizza in the world and speaks using her hands a lot. Her family situation is very unique and inspires much of her work, most recently, her feature film Gold Star, in which she wrote, directed, co-produced, and starred in. Her late father was 37 years older than her mother. Her father, Carmine, survived the Great Depression, World War II, and countless diseases that there are now, luckily, vaccinations for. Because of her “old dad,” Victoria never needed a history book.

Victoria’s artistic journey started very young, playing the piano since she was four years old. She grew up obsessed with Beethoven after her father told her that his piano teacher’s piano teacher’s piano teacher was the man himself. After school, Victoria resumed her love for acting after seeing “Lord of the Rings.” Put simply, she’s a big nerd. Victoria applied early decision to NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. There, she worked hard to study her craft and graduated a few years ago. Since, she’s been acting in many indie films, writing nonstop, dabbling in improv, producing and directing films.

Victoria has a love and appreciation for autobiographical works not only on screen, but in novel form or even most recently graphic memoir form. She is currently in post her semi-autobiographical film, Gold Star. The film is about her relationship with her late father and explores a unique father/daughter relationship, between a dying father and his young, rebellious daughter.

Victoria is inspired by, obsessed with and wanting to work with (or wish she could have worked with) artists such as: Spalding Gray, Terrence Malick, P.T. Anderson, Lena Dunham, Elijah Wood, Marina Abramovic, Alison Bechdel, Beethoven.

She’s currently a member of wonderful, supportive filmmaking organizations such as New York Women in Film and Television, The Film Fatales, The FilmShop, and IFP.
