(also known as "Gabi") is a 23 year old Haitian American actor, writer, producer and director born in central New Jersey. Raised in the town of North Brunswick, there she quickly joined the school's drama program and developed a passion for the craft. After performing for 11 years in musical theater, in 2013, she and her mother moved to South Florida. She continued to perform in high school theater, but delved into the medium of Haitian folkloric dance during her collegiate years, where she grew an appreciation for her rich, Haitian culture.
with her Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education and Business Administration, Gabrielle found herself in an industry far off from where she expected. No longer actively acting, she felt she needed a change. The next month, in August 2019 after graduating, Gabi scratched that itch and moved back to the New York/New Jersey area in pursuit of her full-time acting career.
IN NO TIME, Gabrielle made her official theater debut in New York as Travis in Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun this past November.
while building her craft on stage, Gabrielle has also been establishing her career in the student film circuit. Her most notable lead role was in the NYU Thesis film, "To the Girl that Looks like Me" written and directed by Ewurakua Amoah.
The film has since been selected as a finalist in the 47th
Student Academy Awards presented by The Academy.
Gabrielle dug deeper into her writing and journaling. Without much work for actors, she turned to writing her own work in hope of performing it. During the peak of the season, she came out with writing five scripts: two in post production, one in pre production and two still in development.
In July, Gabrielle made her directorial debut, directing a Healing Room Films production film written and produced by herself. Though 2020 had unraveled many unfortunate events, she is grateful to have gotten her hands wet in the production area and hopes to blend her passion for film on and off the screen throughout her career.
Gabrielle continues to work on her craft, actively in training via zoom studios with NYC professionals such as Susan Batson, Matt Newton and currently Anthony Abeson. She has been cast in two recent features, Before the Rain and A Day to Love and hopes to soon book more work to broaden her range.
OVERALL, Gabrielle aims to use her platform for the betterment of her home country, Ayiti (Haiti). She has always been intentional about highlighting her culture and helping her people. Since 2015, she has been back to Haiti every year. She now awaits the opportunity to bring her stories and her art to the land of her people. This would bring her art full circle and her heart even greater fulfillment.
