Gabi began her design career at the age of five, sitting on her Creative Director father’s lap and bossily telling him to move that image over there and make that text bigger. For many years after, she honed her skills in the fine arts, learning how to draw, paint and, more importantly, how to see.
Her career path in Graphic Design started at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. After graduating magna cum laude in 2008, she moved to New York City to work at BorsaWallace, a boutique design studio where she worked on projects for brands such as Clinique, P&G, Gillette and Penguin Books.
In 2010, at only 24, Gabi led her own design studio in Manhattan—Main Attack Media. There she had the privilege of designing for Super Bowl winners, an Olympic gold medalist, and a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
Gabi moved to Atlanta in 2011 and began working as Senior Designer at the American Cancer Society on their Digital Experience team. In 2014, she channeled her love of sports into a new role at Turner as a Sr. Product Designer, designing digital products for March Madness Live, NCAA.com, PGA, Ryder Cup, and Turner's brand new tech start-up, Catch Sports.
In 2018, Catch Sports became Bleacher Report Live, where Gabi is now the Art Director.
During her free time, you can find Gabi and her husband Alex trying to reign in their mischievous dog Barkley, eating out, doing DIY projects, watching Netflix, or traveling.
