Gabriel is a business, marketing, and corporate innovation expert by day, and a food writer/lover by night. He has lived all over North America, has travelled extensively in Asia, North America and Europe and constantly dreams of extended trips to Singapore where every food whim can be indulged. His perfect vacation is anywhere he can fly to, eat great food, and watch an F1 race at the same time. His favourite meats are duck leg, foie, and lamb rack, and favourite vegetables are grilled asparagus and on-choy in fermented beancurd sauce. Gabriel is currently a freelance writer and photographer for multiple on-line and print publications around the country. His articles focuses on food culture, events, industry life, unique foods, cooking techniques, and how food influences and affects the people and world around them. He has also served on judging panels for various food and cocktail competitions, and chef charity events including the annual Avenue magazine Best Restaurants judging panel for Calgary.
