About

Hi! I’m Gabriella.

I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in May with degrees in Interactive Multimedia Journalism and English Literature with a concentration in Composition, Rhetoric, and Digital Literacy.

This summer I worked as the News Administrative Intern for my local NPR station, WUNC 91.5 FM, as a hip-hop Disc Jockey at WXYC 89.3FM, and as an office assistant at All Day Records. I also held an Innovation Fellowship within UNC's Emerging Technologies Lab where I developed a prototype for a community radio iOS application for Charlotte Public Radio, WFAE.

I just moved home to New York, and I'm currently working as a Social Media Analyst for Hedgehog + Fox. I value user-centered design, sophisticated storytelling, and funky beats.
