Performing Songwriter

A West Coast native, Victor has lived in Alaska, Washington, Arizona, and many places in California. He has worked as a commercial fisherman, shipping and receiving clerk, security guard, electro-plater, welder, small engine mechanic, pipefitter, art instructor, newsletter editor, English teacher, graphic artist, writer, photographer and journalist (and worked in retail for one day). He studied writing in college and uses what he learned to put a lot of stuff in his songs.

Victor’s songs are personal but accessible. Sometimes humorous, often moving, his songs are built with catchy melodies that make them sound deceptively simple.

Victor can most often be heard as the vocalist and rhythm guitar player for Boxcar Figarohttp://lboxcarfigaro.comhttp://lboxcarfigaro.comhttp://lboxcarfigaro.comhttp://boxcarfigaro.comshapeimage_5_link_0shapeimage_5_link_1shapeimage_5_link_2
