When I was a child, I told my mom I hated my name. She said I shouldn't, because Victor meant: The strong one, the conqueror, Victory.
Born in Mississippi and raised in California, my family was always on the go. Both parents were ready for adventure and never afraid to expose us to the ways of the world. As an architectural engineer, my father taught me the virtue of clean and functional structure and design. My mother, a fine artist, introduced me to aesthetics, form, and thinking outside the box. Together, they instilled in me a wonder for where life can take me, and the process of creative problem solving.
Earning a degree in Painting, Film, and Design from the California College of the Arts in Oakland CA, I continue to explore the world with the gear necessary for adventure. By the fickle finger of fate, I became a competitive long distance runner. Due to the need for extremely organized and durable gear bags that the sport demands and the travel which accompanies it, I designed and created the Victory Bag collection as a loving nod to my mother's words so long ago.
Jena Rose: Vice President, Sales Manager, Food & Beverage Engineer
A graduate of Boston University and professional actress & singer for 30 years, I learned a new skill set by opening, owning & operating a long-standing business in the food industry. Looking for yet a new challenge & direction, I teamed up with Victor to help run Victory Sportdesign.
You might find me doing the books, creating sales opportunities, editing social media content, shipping product to customers, wear-testing & feedback, working a booth at an event, or one of many other roles necessary to Victory Sportdesign's success.
Or perhaps you'll see me running or hiking on the trails with Max & Lucy the Victory Mascot!
