Of Indonesian, Chinese, Filipino and Japanese descent, Victor grew up in Vancouver but cut his teeth in the Hong Kong ad industry for over 20 years before serving as CCO in Ogilvy Shanghai.
As a creative turned Film Director, Victor incorporates big-brand thinking with an intricate understanding of processes behind the scenes; meeting marketing briefs with filmmaking solutions, all while keeping it human, authentic, and sometimes even laugh-out-loud funny.
With the characteristic adaptability of a third culture kid, Victor instinctively understands different cultural nuances, which contributes to his astute point of view. Coupled with a profound insight into advertising, Victor easily collaborates with creative agencies – putting clients at ease, and allowing them to place their trust in his creative vision.
Outside of work, Victor is an avid techie/nerd who enjoys 3D-printing movie props and runs a cinema lover’s Facebook community called Manic About Movies which he contributes on a regular basis. A closet mad scientist, he dreams of building a high tech workshop one day.
