Gabe currently serves as a staff writer and designer at BarBend. Outside of work he likes to train for the occasional marathon, he has two under his belt (Asheville, NC & New Orleans), and ride his bike around the streets of Brooklyn. He also stays active by playing soccer in leagues around the city and gains back some calories by drinking beer with his Central Park softball team. In his free time, Gabe likes to try out new recipes in the kitchen and work through his ever-growing book list on his couch.
