In early 2022, she was brought on to The Drive as a full-time writer. She currently lives as close as she can to her one true love, the desert, in Reno, NV.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Interests include classic JDM obscurities, drifting, scale model building, and overlanding.
  • Specifically interested in the history and culture of the cars that built enthusiasm and automotive joy, and photographing them artfully.

EXPERIENCE

Victoria has been an automotive enthusiast since the age of two, and has experience in off-road competition driving, autocross, track driving, and drift competitions; in addition, she is a professional photographer. Her proudest feature series has been The Vanscontinental Express, written for The Drive in 2021, chronicling her adventures driving through the West in a JDM Toyota van as she rediscovered herself after she began her gender transition.

Fun Fact

While her garage is varied and ever-changing, Victoria’s favorite vehicle will forever be her 1995 Toyota Hiace 3.0 Turbodiesel Super Custom. With factory-equipped curtains, a 2” lift, and the world’s most dependable diesel heart, her van (christened “Marsha”) is where her heart is.
