Hi there!

My name is Victoria, and I'm a digital storyteller and researcher. 

When I was a kid my dad moved to Saudi Arabia, and for 4 months my brother and I lived in rural Virginia with my grandparents until we could join him. To fill the time, my grandma encouraged me to write and photograph a book of stories about my adventures on the farm; complete with wild horses, fat ducks, and dangerous tire swings. 

So, I started to create – and never stopped. 

Fast-forward 17 years and I've learned to pair creativity and academic curiosity to conduct research and create content for over a dozen policy organizations, think-tanks, academic institutions, digital lifestyle magazines, travel websites, activists, and more. Specifically, I've done academic and policy research in fields such as security; counter-terrorism; defense; multiculturalism; irregular migration; ethnic conflict; entrepreneurship; and gender. And my geographical interest is in the Middle East/North Africa region. Currently, I'm determined to learn more about the nexus of AI and international conflict; and space. (Always, space.) 

Influencing all of my work is the desire to increase accessibility to information regarding complex, global issues through academic research, design and multimedia content.
