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!
A native of San Diego (USA), Gil graduated in Politics and English from Brandeis University and later earned two Master's degrees: the first in Public Administration from New York University, and the second a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. After earning his MFA and producing his first book, Gil moved to Paris for a Parisienne and hasn't looked back. For over a decade Gil has lived, written, worked, and led tours in Paris. His background in literature - both canonized and contemporary - combined with his understanding of the inner workings of cities have enabled Gil to tell his narratives as experiences and provide unique insights into Parisian life.
