A new follower of Christ and a father to two, Gabriel spends most his off time traveling the world in a very extreme fashion. He has run with the bulls in Spain, partied in Ibiza, visited Jerusalem 6 times, and toured the Amazon rainforest on a houseboat. When not traveling he can be found generously donating his time and resources to those in need. He has been the featured guest on the hit TV show Hunting the Country and is currently the star in a network pilot reality TV show. This outspoken, charismatic, and open-minded explorer is usually the life of the party, known as honest to a fault, and one who soaks up every experience this short life has to offer.
