Hi, I’m Victoria.
I’m a curator, host, producer and the founder of community systems studio hito labs. My work is about bringing people together.
Semiotician by training, strategist by trade and people-person at heart, the idea of “quality of the connections” has been the guiding principle in my practice. This has lead me to work on ambitious projects with extraordinary people. Whether it’s developing a new talent network for EY, designing new business models for IKEA, exploring the future of work with Virgin or curating for the V&A, my approach to building products and experiences is community-first.

You should start projects because you feel like you are going to either explode, or vomit, or both. You’ve gotta have that kind of burning desire in your stomach to do it.
Surround yourself with like minded people, and good things really do tend to happen.
You have to develop your own rhythm.
Ethics is about listening to that still small voice within you that tells you what to do. It is not separate from what you do, it is the reason you do what you do.
We are teaching children how to be prepared for jobs that do not yet exist in fields that do not yet exist. That’s powerful work. And that powerful work that’s happening in your public schools is going to make our community that much better and that much stronger.
This is to experience something wtih soul in it
Seek out criticism.
Continually refine your craft through practice, repetition, love and mistakes.
Every morning I wake up and I sit in a little, private quiet corner before I start my day, and I think of things that I'm really grateful for because as a creative we have to stay strong in what we do and we have to stay strong in who we are. I think the biggest, most powerful form of doing that is gratitude.
Reality is subjective, but it is malleable. If you want to reshape it, you have to use your own hands.
