Gabe is currently a master's student at the University of California San Diego who has had a passion for the environment since early childhood. He has a knack for bringing to light unconventional ways to recycle, many of which his peers have not considered. He aims to bring these forms of recycling to the masses through his writing. Gabe spends much of his spare time enjoying everything San Diego has to offer. This includes surfing the city's beaches and exploring its new hiking trails.
