Victor was raised in the fishing port village of Quanicassee near Bay City on a farm. He made Traverse City his home in 1992 when he secured a job transfer with Ameritech/SBC/AT&T. He says the area is a perfect balance for his life . . . not too big, not too small. He and Matilde (Matt), his life partner of 34 years are very close to his three older sisters that are scattered over Michigan and Ohio and they all enjoy getting together as often as possible. He has developed a keen interest in dancing and enjoys the classroom camaraderie. He also enjoys tinkering with old VW Beetles and gardening.
Victor earned a teaching degree from Michigan State University but was snatched up by "Ma Bell" upon graduation in 1975. He truly enjoys teaching and helping others; academically, organizationally or by sharing whatever it is he has. All of this makes Victor an excellent instructor for SwingShift and the Stars.
