Gabi is a recovered workaholic. Her workaholicism is tempered by her wanderlust and penchant for the peculiar. In her spare time, she travels, practices archery, paints her nightmares, and collects hot sauce from every country she visits. Gabi eats an irresponsible amount of guacamole and suffers from a predisposition to smiling. She is not very funny.
