About me

Hi, I'm Gabriela, Producer Director, entrepreneur, yoga addict and runner, devote to help fellow entrepreneurs and business owners to prosper. ​ I love everything about being a filmmaker, developing a new idea, creating beautiful footage and telling incredible stories; I love travelling, knowing new people, learning new skills and getting to know different cultures. While travelling and living around the world I've managed to accumulate international end-to-end experience of the audiovisual process; directing, producing and editing a wide-range of commercials, TV shows, corporate films and documentaries.
