Managing Editor
Upworthy
Website


Victoria Fine is the managing editor at Upworthy, a very quickly growing media company that helps meaningful content go viral. Upworthy tries make important, world-changing ideas as fun to share as some dude surfing off his roof. Sometimes it works. Victoria also runs The Tiziano Project, which teaches people in under-represented regions multimedia storytelling skills to help them tell true stories from their own points of view. Because of this, she's pretty good at fixing wonky computer problems, MacGyver-style. Her work has received top honors from the ONAs, the Gracies, SXSW, the Webbys and Adobe, among others. She won three Webbys for her work with Counterspill.org, an interactive project that looks at the continued impact of fossil fuel disasters on communities. Before doing all that, she was a founding and managing editor of the Impact & Education sections of The Huffington Post and sporadically teaches journalism at USC.
