Victor was born in Plattsburgh New York and since has traveled much of the world producing outdoor television. Music has been a staple in Victor’s life for the past 20 years and recently he has experienced an overflow of original writing “I have a bad habit of putting my foot in my mouth. Music is an opportunity for me to collect my thoughts, put them down on paper, and then deliver them. Without music I think I would be in trouble a lot more frequently.” Playing in and around the Quinte area, Victor has been able to fulfill his passion for performing in his very occasional free time. He now lives in Quinte west with his wife Jodi.
