Viki is a performer, teacher, and facilitator and has been passionate about improv and theatre for over 20 years.
Born and raised in New Jersey, in a Hungarian family, bookworm Viki first discovered improv as a very shy 8th grader with her troupe "Almost a House". At Rutgers University, where she graduated summa cum laude with majors in French Literature and Classics, and minors in Mathematics and Hungarian, Viki acted, directed, and was President of the College Avenue Players, the campus comedic theater group.
After university, Viki worked in Nice, France as an English teaching assistant before spending a year as a case manager in New York for Project Renewal’s Next Step program to help the formerly homeless find jobs. She returned to Europe to begin an MA in Translation at Queens University, Belfast, before accepting a position at a philanthropic foundation in Geneva in 2010.
The Geneva English Drama Society provided Viki with an outlet to act (e.g. Annette in God of Carnage, 2013), direct (e.g. Baby with the Bathwater, 2015), and even bring her organizational skills to the fore on the Committee for three years.
Onstage and off with the Renegade Saints, Viki loves helping the shy kids come out of their shells and discover, as she did 20 years ago, the power of co-creating new worlds through performance.
