Where light and color shaped his existence; a glimpsed beginning of a blurred city sight, Gabriel found his camera within the earth of the reservation. Those red rocks made him strong and able to accomplish a diploma in film production, in cinematography at the Vancouver Film School. He has also studied at The Chicago Academy of the Arts and Chicago Columbia College. Gabriel is also a Sundance Institute Fellow Writer, for his upcoming feature film The Beginnings of My Heart. In 2014 Gabriel featured work in the Miami Art Basell dome piece for Ai Weiwei's native project. In 2015 he also did a video for Patricia Michaels for the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem Massachusetts "Native Fashion Now". He continues to seek ways to give voice to the Native experience in a modern day context. He has recently moved to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue music and help be a part of the music world for film and video.
