Gabriel is a journalist who's trying to make jazz more popular for mainstream audiences.

Gabriel is a Mexican journalist and former radio host who loves jazz, bossa nova, and rock.

He earned a master's degree in Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Nebraska (Lincoln).

He has worked as a full time reporter for the Mexican national newspaper Excelsior in Mexico City, as well as for El Universal Estados Unidos in San Antonio, Texas.

He has also written stories for websites like Fusion (an Univision and ABC News joint venture) and Nebraska Mosaic; as well as magazines like Travel + Leisure, Music:Life and Donde Ir.

He has also worked as a radio host and script writer at Horizonte 107.9 FM, the only Mexican radio station dedicated to jazz in Mexico City; as well as at KRNU, 90.3 FM, where he hosted a talk show with interviews about the problems surrounding immigration policies in the U.S.

He is very interested in promoting jazz in Mexico and the rest of the world.

There are great Mexican jazz musicians, but their work is not so well known around the world, except for some few examples.
