Emma McVicar lives in Cambridge, MA with her cat, Munchie. She has been making videos since she was in 5th grade, and is best known for her early hits, including "The 13 O'Clock News", "Extreme Nerd Makeover", and a unique interpretation of Shakira's "She Wolf" video. She currently works for a tech company, producing videos for online courses, but still loves making her own videos on the side. She doesn't take herself too seriously and has always loved making things that make people smile (often including fake mustaches). Film is her first love, and VPP has been an amazing challenge and incredibly joyful experience.
