Gabe grew up living all over the place including Nicaragua, Florida, England, Alabama, and Michigan. After obtaining a BA in Theatre Arts from Benedictine College, Gabe pursued jobs in elementary education and professional theatre in Minneapolis. His eclectic upbringing and career sparked a love for travel, the outdoors and the beauty of experiencing nature with others.
While in college, Gabe worked with inmates to compose theatre performances. The therapeutic power of art and story-telling was a huge influence in searching for other jobs in therapy. Wilderness therapy combined education, the outdoors and helping adolescents in a non-traditional format.
In his off time, Gabe loves to travel, hike, tell stories, sing, draw, write poetry and experience art in all its forms.
