As an only child growing up in Santa Fe, NM, Gabriel was always drawn to stories, movies, games and places where his imagination could run wild. He studied music, visual art, theatre, anything he could. It wasn’t until his high school drama teacher asked him to write an original score for Tom Stoppard’s Dogg’s Hamlet Cahoot’s Macbeth that he first realized that his medium for telling stories could be scoring.
With a style that draws equally upon years of producing and performing with amazing bands in Brooklyn as well as his time studying the master composers of old, Gabriel enjoys synthesizing creative solutions to serve the story and serve the music.
Now living in Los Angeles, he has composed the music for Disney’s Star Darlings and Palace Pets. He’s also written for numerous live action films and TV shows including Half the Sky, A Path appears (PBS) 7 Deadly Sins (Showtime), Travis Walton.
Gabriel keeps his songwriting flame alive under the moniker of Shortwave Sunshine.
In his free-time, Gabriel enjoys exploring the coast of California with his wife Holly and their two daughters Sadie and Gemma.
He has a BM from Denver’s Lamont School of Music and an MFA in composition from NYU.
