Gabby was raised in Los Angeles, California where she discovered her passion for the arts at the age of six. She grew up fascinated with the ideas of “play” and “make-believe” which continue to motivate her today. Her parents immediately enrolled her in The Children’s Civic Light Opera, a drama summer camp, where she could expend her enormous amount of energy on the stage instead of in their face. Her dreams were beginning to become concrete when she enrolled at the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts (LACHSA) as a theatre major performing in numerous plays and musicals. From there she decided she wanted to experience all FOUR seasons so she moved to Pittsburgh, PA where she studied Music Theatre/Acting at Carnegie Mellon School of Drama.
Carnegie Mellon changed her life, and it was there where she became an artist. The program opened up Gabby’s mind to every possibility that led to endless creativity between herself and her peers. She performed in numerous musicals, plays, new works, TV projects, and even developed/performed her one-woman show. She graduated with a BFA, college/university honors, received the Thomas Auclair Memorial Scholarship Award and the Charles Willard Memorial Award. Upon graduation, she moved to New York City where she was cast in the 1st National Tour of AMERICAN IDIOT as “Whatsername.” She currently lives in NYC where she continues to expand her views/ideas through her work and life. Gabby is thankful to her parents, family, mentors, classmates, and friends for their endless support.
