Gabrielle was born in Paris and lived in the UK for 12 years before coming back to her native city in 2016. Passionate about both languages and history, she is about to gain her PhD in ancient history from University College London and is now working as a translator and higher education teacher. Gabrielle loves walking through the streets of Paris and is always on the lookout for undiscovered spots and details, for many old and hidden stories are lurking beneath the smooth Hausmannian façades of the city of lights ... An enthusiastic and cheerful communicator, Gabrielle is thrilled to be part of the Context team!
Born in San Diego (USA), Gil graduated in Politics and English from Brandeis University in 1997 and spent one year at Trinity College Dublin (Ireland). He pursued public service in Boston, New Orleans, and New York, and upon earning a Master of Public Administration from NYU in 2001 he traveled around the world for a year to meet the people he hoped to one day represent. In 2003 he was working at the Claims Conference when he decided to move to San Francisco in pursuit of a backdoor option to public office: writing fiction. Some years later he completed a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, produced his first book, and married a Parisienne. Since 2010 he is based in Paris where he has worked for years presenting and developing many different walks while holding on to the writer's dream and founding the Yefe Nof Residency in Lake Arrowhead, California. He specializes in the craft of writing and has a strong education in both the literary works of canonized and contemporary fiction writers and poets and the inner workings of cities, which has amply equipped him to tell his narratives as experiences.
