I'm Gabrielle. I'm a journalist, essayist, and cartoonist based in Montreal, Quebec.

I got my start at my student newspaper, the Western Gazette, where I fell in love with storytelling. Since leaving the paper and graduating from Western in 2020, I've written for outlets like the New York Times, the Globe and Mail, the Walrus, the CBC, and more. I also worked as a general reporter for the Coast in the summer of 2021. There, I covered the goings-on in Halifax before becoming the paper's resident Bachelorette-watcher. Though I'm interested in covering a range of topics, I especially love writing about health, disability, and culture. I'm currently working on an essay about my love of pre-minced garlic for the Walrus, and have a forthcoming series about cooking and disability for Catapult.

In addition to writing, I love illustration and humour. I'm a contributor and cartoonist for the New Yorker, and have also drawn for the CBC, the Globe and Mail, and the Coast. I'm always looking for more opportunities to draw — don't hesitate to reach out if you're an editor (or even just someone looking for a private commission!).  If you're interested in buying some art, you can check out my print shop.

Some non-work related facts about me: I love soup, the Scream franchise, and collecting bird-shaped trinkets for my apartment. I'm also an MFA student at the University of Guelph, where I'm working on a manuscript. 


I love chatting about my work, whether it be on a panel, to a classroom, or with others in the industry. Feel free to reach out with speaking requests, work inquiries, or with anything else! I'm available for contract work as a copywriter or editor, too.
