Gabrielle (GAL, as some call me) is a writer and editor for magazines, newspapers, consulting firms, environmental organizations, letters, years-long email threads, post-it notes, and oh so much more. I have previously been based in Manhattan and Jakarta and am presently on the road in South America, following where stories lead. Art, politics, travel, social issues, food, climate change, profiles, opinion pieces, and critical reviews are all within my realm of experience and interest. Personal website design does not.
Previous work experience includes serving as deputy editor of DestinAsian, an award-winning luxury travel magazine in Southeast Asia; editor, report writer, and semi-consultant for Vriens & Partners, a Jakarta-based government affairs advisory firm; researcher at New York; editorial assistant at Travel + Leisure; and, throughout, freelance writer and editor.
Habitual endeavors include writing a fiction novel, running, reading print magazines from cover-to-cover with wine and a candle, making ice cream, and trying to love as well as one can.
