Fluent en español, en Français, e em Português.
Gabriel’s background is as diverse as the Real Estate market in South Florida… He was born in Caracas, Venezuela, where he grew up. However, his first language was French since his parents moved to Paris on a scholarship when he was only 10 months old. Gabriel attended undergraduate studies in a Caracas university, pursuing studies in Economics and Communications, before moving to France where he completed a French Language and Cultural Studies program. In 1998, before Y2K, he moved to Orlando, FL, where he majored in Film & Video Production.
After more than eight years in the media production field, Gabriel went back to school, graduating Valedictorian with a bachelor’s degree in Entertainment Business. Upon completion, he joined The Walt Disney Travel Company (WDTC), in the Disney Reservation Center as a sales agent. And after a successful start, Gabriel was promoted to the wholesale team (Disney Destinations), joining the International Sales Team, working with Latin American markets. On the job, Gabriel learned Portuguese and became fluent in it. During that time, he went back to college to complete an MBA, graduating with honors from Rollins College in Winter Park, FL. After two years in a support role with the International Sales Team, he was promoted again to Sales Manager for Latin Emerging Markets. Two years later, Gabriel was promoted again to Sales Manager for Mexico, the largest Latin market for Disney Destinations. In 2012, SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment (SEA), recruited Gabriel to become Senior Sales Manager for International Sales & Marketing, representing a family of 12 parks and 7 brands, across 5 different states. There he managed key accounts covering the entire globe. Additionally, during his tenure at SEA, Gabriel represented the company before trade and community organizations (such as the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Orlando and 8th Annual U.S.-China Tourism Leadership Summit, held in Chicago, IL.) In 2018, Gabriel relocated to South Florida hired by Visit Lauderdale, Broward County's tourism promotion entity, where he led marketing and sales initiatives in Canada, Europe, Latin America, and the UK.
After years as either a client or an investor, Gabriel pivoted into the Real Estate industry as a Sales Associate by joining the prestigious team at BHHS EWM Realty in Coral Gables, FL, in 2021, focusing on Residential and Commercial transactions (Seller, Buyer, Rental/Lease).
In March of 2009 came one of Gabriel’s proudest moments. He was sworn-in as an American citizen after more than 10 years living in the US. Gabriel is the happy and proud father of three, Vivia Victoria, P. Rio Chaim and Noemi Zoila. He is an avid reader, and if he had the time, he would go surfing every weekend.
