Early life and education
Gabe was born in La Jolla, California. His father is a civil engineer and PhD graduate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and his mother is a nurse. Both of his parents were born in the Philippines.
At Antioch, Gabe has had five co-op jobs. Gabe interned full-time at a community foundation in Manhattan, and then at a communications firm in Washington, D.C. He has also interned at the U.S. Department of State and at Nagasaki University's Research Center for Nuclear Weapons Abolition.
Gabe also participated in the State Department's U.S. Foreign Service Internship Program.
Gabe has a younger sister, Michaela, born in 1996.
As a Wikipedian
Gabe registered as a Wikipedia editor on September 20, 2012. Gabe recalls browsing Wikipedia as far back as 2005, when he was 10 years old.
His interests on Wikipedia include anything from international relations to astronomy to video games. As a detail-oriented editor, he identifies as a WikiGnome. As such, most of his edits entail typo fixes, grammatical improvements, bolding main subjects and abbreviations, citations, Wikilinks, disambiguation pages, redirects, and category pages. In his view, improving the little details helps improve the bigger picture overall. On occasion, he does create articles of his own and make effort to substantially improve stubs (see projects below).
