Victor Casillas Valle
Los Angeles-born Victor C. Valle attends the University of San Francisco, where he double majors in communication studies and media studies. After a year of immersing himself into the Bay Area scene, in late 2011 he began his music publication We Move Against The Tides, which brings light to local and underrated artists of the Bay Area through articles, interviews and reviews. Because Victor’s first passion was for shoe-leather journalism, he has also worked as a freelance writer on his own time. Recently, he has expanded his work in music journalism by contributing to local music website The Deli San Francisco. Additionally, Victor is involved with radio station and photography magazine THSNDWRDS. He’s also in management for local Bay Area band Morgan Manifacier and directs the on-campus poetry club WORD!
