Born and raised in the South Eastern suburbs of Naarm/Melbourne, Gabriel realised his passion for the arts from a young age when he took an interest in creative writing. Fast-forward to the tender age of 15, he knew that telling stories was going to be a part of his life after seeing the film 'Stand By Me' in a High School English class. At the age of 17, Gabriel left school to pursue a career in acting at the Film & Television Studio International where he studied various acting techniques. After graduating from FTV, Gabriel landed his first guest role in the Sci-Fi, Netflix drama 'Glitch'. Two years later, Gabriel graduated from the arts school JMC Academy with a Bachelor in Film & Television Production, while studying method acting at the Melbourne Actors Lab. Recently, Gabriel has teamed up with Zane Borg at Pancake Originals, where they aim to push untold Australian stories. His directorial debut feature film 'Sunflower' was selected by Queer Screen to take part in the Goes to Cannes showcase at the Marché du film program in 2023. Shortly after, 'Sunflower' world premiered at the Sydney Film Festival (SFF) and has since been selected for every major Australian film festival, including the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) and the Adelaide Film Festival (AFF). Earlier in the year, 'Sunflower' was also awarded a completion grant from the Queer Screen Mardi Gras Film Festival.
