A specialist in forging strong relationships with complex organisations (such as the FBI, National Crime Agency, Counter Terrorism Command and US Department of Justice) and reluctant individuals (convicted murderers, Waco survivors and 9/11 victim families among them), Victoria revels in securing access where others fail.
Born and raised in East London, where she now lives with her husband, daughter and their miniature dachshund, Douglas, Victoria has a passion for investigative documentaries and factual, access-driven drama.
Upon graduating from the esteemed, skillset accredited BA (Hons) Television Production at Bournemouth University –whereby her final project, A Different Face, would later win the 2012 Al Jazeera New Horizon award – Victoria began her career as an intern on Channel 4’s Dispatches, researching the RTS-winning documentary, Lessons in Hate and Violence.
Victoria has since worked across a whole range of current affairs and factual dramas, including the uplifting, cinema-released doc, Mission To Lars, the acclaimed BBC Two history documentary, 747: The Plane That Changed TheWorld. As well more recently the BBC Three series, Love & Hate Crime and the BBC One landmark documentary, Stephen: The Murder That Changed A Nation.
Pairing her tenacious work ethic with a dedication to self-improvement – recent qualifications include first aid and AKE hostile environment training, plus an advanced media law course at the London School of Journalism – Victoria has a proven track record for success.
Her development and producing work has yielded a number of prizes from the Royal Television Society, Reel Screen, Broadcast Magazine, Broadcast Digital and The Grierson Awards.
In 2015, Victoria was crowned one of the Edinburgh International Television Festival’s ‘Ones To Watch’ – a “scheme to reward the most exciting, nurturing and diverse people in TV”. In 2016 she was named as a Broadcast ‘Hot Shot’ and in 2017 she was selected for the acclaimed Sheffield Doc/Fest ‘Future Producer School’. More recently Victoria was selected for the prestigious Creative Skillset Series Producer Programme, run in conjunction with the BBC, Channel 4 and Channel 5.
In 2019 Victoria joined the BBC as the Head of Development for TV Current Affairs.
