As the #1-ranked multifamily architecture firm in North America, Humphreys & Partners relies on our incredible team from around the world to create innovative, one-of-a-kind communities. As Architectural Coordinator, Victoria Sum is the go-to gal for our Production Department when they need assistance with anything and everything. In addition, Victoria also assists Robin Bellerby, Principal at HPA. Let’s get to know Victoria outside (and inside) the office and see what makes her a true icon of #HumphreysHeroes culture:
- What is your Alma mater?
I have a Bachelors in Fine Arts in Studio Art from Angelo State University in San Angelo, Texas. My dad is an art professor there (and an amazing artist!), so I followed in his footsteps.
- Where did you grow up?
Lubbock, Texas. I shared the same high school homeroom as Buddy Holly.
- What are your hobbies outside of the office?
Drinking seltzer, dancing, puzzles, playing with my adorable beagle Birdie, visiting art museums, winning at Uno, eating tacos, searching for vintage Eames chairs, and sending snail mail to pals.
- If you could travel anywhere where would it be and why?
Hong Kong. Its been a long time since I’ve seen my family. Also, I love dim sum.
- What would be your last meal?
Dim sum and a bottle of Topo Chico.
- What is the best concert you have ever been to?
David Byrne! I’m a huge Talking Heads Fan and he puts on a pretty spectacular show!
- What is your favorite part about working at HPA?
The people! My co-workers have turned into lifelong friendships, which is pretty special.
