Key Accomplishments

I'm an experienced system architect and engineer with 24 years’ experience implementing technology in industries ranging from finance to online gaming. Most recently, I've created several systems with high scale requirements. At CPXi, I wrote a system that handled more than 35B ad impressions per month for over 15M unique monthly users. At Zynga, I wrote a Poker data gathering and analysis system that processed over 400 stats for 60M played hands per day for 4M unique daily users. I was also responsible at Zynga for the administration of the 205 servers that ran the Poker analysis system. I've been a startup co-founder and CTO as well, so I understand all about the tough choices that must be made when balancing time to market versus limited resources. I have a UC Irvine Information and Computer Science degree as well.

Think Gabriel is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Jeannine Torres
We worked together at The Parent Tree  •  Advisory Board Member, www.SchoolSpice.com and Founder, M.E.T.A (Mom Entrepreneurs in Technology Association).
Having worked with Gabriel on a few startups now, I have seen first-hand his strong work ethic, dedication, and intellectual curiosity. He i ... s able to take complex problems and break them down into bite-sized, manageable chunks that keep projects flowing smoothly and efficiently. He has great ideas, is a driven go-getter and is an all around amazing person to work with. I could not have asked for a better startup partner. I have no doubt that Gabe will make an excellent addition to your membership.

Justin Hefter
They're my advisor  •  Business Intern, The Peres Center for Peace. Previously Senior Analyst, The Avascent Group. Stanford grad.
Justin's smart, has a clear goal, can break meeting that goal down to incremental steps. Justin's vision is grand, but I believe he is one o ... f those rare people that can achieve a grand vision. Justin's drive and ability to find creative solutions to seemingly binary problems are a vital asset to a startup. Unfortunately I am extremely busy with my own project, otherwise I would join Justin in an instant.

Jesse Merl
We worked together  •  President/Gatsby TV, Gatsby Entertainment.
Jesse is a driven powerhouse. Jesse is one of those people around whom things happen because Jesse takes the reins and does whatever needs t ... o be done to achieve the goal. Besides being extremely driven and resourceful, Jesse is very smart. Jesse is a natural leader, but he puts his ego aside, and if his best contribution is as a subordinate, he will simply assume the role without thinking it twice. It was a pleasure working alongside Jesse and will gladly do so again.
