Gabe was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina. He is a graduate of the College of Charleston where he studied and received a Bachelor of Arts in Arts Management with a double minor in Theatre and Political Science.  He also studied at the New York Film Academy with a concentration on Acting for Film.

Childcare Experience:  Gabe has been working with children for over 8 years, from caring for the little kids in his church at a young age, babysitting for family friends, to becoming a teaching artist. While studying theatre at the College of Charleston, he also took courses working in Children’s Theatre which involved working with elementary schools in the local area to help children foster their creativity. He’s also worked with groups such as Rural Missions, where he fed, clothed, and spent time with kids in underprivileged communities on John’s Island, SC with many other members of the program. He was hired as a resident actor and teaching artist for Charleston Stage Company where he taught kids during Summer Stage (theatre summer camp for kids 5 years old to 13 years old) and taught theatre classes during the school year from kindergarten to 5th grade.  In those classes, they learned the concepts of theatre, music, art and were engaged in many games and projects that helped nurture and bring out their own creativity as well. Many games that He created while being in residency at Charleston Stage were very effective and were also used by other Resident Actors. He has also worked with Seaside Repertory Theatre in Santa Rosa Beach, FL for the past summer where he performed in many Children’s Shows and did children’s story telling improvisation (Stories by the SEA) for kids 1 year to 9 years old, weekly. He also spent time touring with the National Theatre for Children and went to many different elementary schools in the area of Minneapolis, MN and North Carolina, teaching the importance of energy efficiency.

Personal Interests:  Outside of Performing and Acting, Gabe absolutely loves writing songs. Music is one of his biggest passions. Nothing gives him more pleasure than finding a nice quiet area, with his guitar, and start writing from his heart. He also loves listening to good music, whatever the genre may be, like rock, pop rock, jazz, classical, pop, hip hop, musicals, contemporary, folk, acoustic, world, it doesn’t matter. He loves it all, especially going to concerts. Gabe also loves playing football, soccer, tennis, ultimate Frisbee and beach volley ball. He feels it is a way to have a great workout, build focus, and strength, while enjoying the outdoors at the same time. He is a big fan of Superman and Batman of DC comics (Superheroes in general), Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang, Long boarding (which is basically surfing but on concrete), choreographing dance moves to different styles of music, writing short plays, running and working out, singing Christmas songs (even sometimes when it’s not Christmas), traveling across the country, visiting historical landmarks, the American Revolutionary war,  and of course, going to see Broadway shows.

Personal Quote:  “The Man of Tomorrow is forged by the battles he wins today.”
