Gabrielle is a former Democratic political staffer turned audio and editorial producer. While journeying from Capitol Hill to City Hall, she learned the fundamentals of storytelling and its power to transform how we talk about people, place, identity, culture, and politics. She decided to move beyond regression analysis and policy memos, to better understand the often messy, vibrant, and nuanced human narratives that make people, people — and ultimately impact how they navigate the world around them. Turns out, audio storytelling is the perfect platform to do just that.
From daily news to narrative, she has worked with individuals and organizations to tell the stories that matter to their audiences. Through this medium, Gabrielle champions the stories of black women+ and girls and is the lead producer for award-winning authors and renowned cultural critics Roxane Gay and Tressie McMillan Cottom's hit new podcast, Hear To Slay, on Luminary Media.
The Inglewood, CA native began her audio production career at NPR member station Michigan Radio and Crooked Media. Gabrielle is a member of the Association of Independents in Radio (AIR), volunteer producer of the hit indie podcast You Had Me At Black, and a 2018 volunteer alumni of both Third Coast Conference and Allied Media Conference. She is a proud alumna of Spelman College, and holds a Master of Public Policy from the University of Michigan.
Beyond work, Gabrielle lives for tacos, curling up with a good book, vibing out to new alternative R&B playlists, indulging in very healthy amounts of reality TV, applying post-yoga face masks, being that friend who asks you to hold off on eating so she can post food stories on the gram, and catching flights to see you.
