Senior Account Manager
Gabe applies skills and experience honed in the political and policy arenas to his work building and implementing strategies that synthesize strategic communication, community building and advocacy.
Always a fan of tackling thorny issues, Gabe is happiest diving into a complex challenge and bringing compelling messages to the surface. At Spitfire, his client projects include driving narrative change around internet freedom on the African continent and providing communication support to local immigrant rights and social justice organizations in Colorado.
Gabe previously helped found Together We Count, a nonprofit focused on preparing Colorado for the 2020 Census. He served in multiple roles for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 primary and general election campaigns, and worked on financial issues, housing and inclusive economic development for Senate Democratic Whip Richard J. Durbin (D-IL). During his time in the Senate, Gabe was part of the team that successfully influenced the Department of Housing and Urban Development to align its guidelines on children’s blood lead levels with current recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Recently, Gabe helped organize a traveling public art advocacy project – by world-renowned artist JR – to support voter registration efforts in Latino communities across Georgia, Florida and Texas, which garnered local, national and international press.
An avid collector of books, Gabe can be found perusing Farenheit’s Books for the latest addition to his collection.
