Hi, I’m Gabriel Novo, a bisexual Hispanic writer & photographer bouncing between NYC and London.
Like most of us in this gig economy I’ve juggled numerous hats to keep things moving forward, from traveling tech nerd to comic book editor to relationship manager, all while continuing to side hustle my true passions: fiction, essays, and visual storytelling.
I’ve always been compelled to chronicle emotions and experiences. Maybe it’s a symptom of being part of a diaspora without roots, the Cuba of my parents no longer a reality, which forced me to build a heritage through word and image to replace the one I never received. Perhaps it’s from my empathetic curiosity which began during a country hopping childhood and continued into my globe trotting present. No matter how you look at my origins, telling stories through every possible medium has been at my core for as long as I can remember.
