She is the Director/Producer of the nationally broadcast PBS documentary "The Music's Gonna Get You Through" (produced in partnership with American Public Television/iTVS) and most recently served as a Story/Production Consultant on the opening night selection of the 2016 Margaret Mead Festival, "A Revolution in Four Seasons" and the film "We Are Not Princesses," which had its premiere at Doc NYC 2018 and is partnered with the United Nations Refugee Agency to screen for international refugee populations.
Gabrielle got her start in film in 1995 learning all the ins and outs of production from current Amazon Pictures production head Ted Hope at Good Machine, his original production company with James Shamus (prodco for Ang Lee, Todd Haynes, Nicole Holofcener). She went on to collaborate with Daily Show/Conan O'Brien staff writer Rob Kutner to produce her first short film, Pie Chi, a horror-comedy inspired by her time working odd jobs in New York City as a night baker and martial arts instructor for public school. Pie Chi debuted at the HBO Urban World Festival and later on television on Showtime.
Awards for her work include: Independent Television Service LINCS Partner, The Bay Area Video Coalition's MediaMaker Award, The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation’s Community Partnership Grant and Chicken & Egg Pictures "We Believe In You" Grant.
