Gabriel was born, raised, and still lives in San Francisco. He is currently enrolled at San Francisco State University, and is about a half year away from receiving his B.A in Mathematics (w/ concentration in teaching). His plans after school are to enroll in a credential program so that he may one day teach 6th -12th grade mathematics for a distinguished school in the San Francisco Unified School District. Gabriel has been passionate about teaching since entering high school, and has never considered a different career path. He wants to make math fun and relevant for all students.
In his free time, Gabriel enjoys volunteering for various organizations and is a true SF Bay Area sports fan! He roots for the SF Giants, Golden State Warriors, and 49ers, and he plays in different recreational baseball and basketball leagues. One day he’d love to be a coach, too!
