Gabe, a Southern Californian raised in the foothills of Los Ángeles is no stranger to the outdoors. From an early age hiking and climbing around his home town to traveling around the World tackling more complex trails and mountains. Gabe has gained extensive invaluable experience on his travels and needless to say is a welcome addition to the leadership team at HKOutsider.
After arriving in Hong Kong and working in the energetic F&B industry he quickly found himself struggling to find the right work life balance. Discovering our community and its varying activities which can be as short as a two hour night hike enabled him to find his outlet and passion for the outdoors once again. Gabe appreciates the camaraderie in the community with others from different walks of life and if you are lucky enough to find him guiding the group, he is quite the charming entertainer.
