Meet the Team: Gabe

We’re continuing our Meet the Team series with an introduction to Gabe, who helped launch Uber in Arizona nearly three years ago. Gabe’s got a soft spot in his heart (and his belly) for the local chefs that are putting PHX on the map. His mission over the last three years has been to make Uber an integral part of AZ, NM and the world. If you see him on the street, ask and he’ll be your culinary guide to the valley and beyond. Read on for more about Gabe!

Describe yourself in one word. Shinyuu.

Where did you grow up? New London, WI – Population 6,000

When you’re not working, you love to… Eat, drink and play music.

Which superhero would you be and why? Calvin from Calvin & Hobbes

My ultimate vacation getaway would consist of… Vietnam with Anthony Bourdain. Of course I would bring my wife, Chanelle along for the ride. Ideally we would hit up all of Bourdain’s favorite back alley spots, drink copious amounts of the local brew and eat phở. Lots and lots of spicy phở.

PHOENIX FAVORITES

Restaurant: There are too many to name, but to name a few…The Local (R.I.P) Atlas Bistro, The Gladly, The Stand, Pizzeria Bianco, Pane Bianco, Postino, Crudo, Shinbay, Posh.

Bar: Bitter & Twisted – the L.I.T. Up is a drink like nothing you’ve had, effervescent and refreshing – there’s a reason the limit is two per guest. But let’s be serious, I love all of my local bartenders equally.

Hidden Gem: Los Dos Molinos (South Phoenix)

Bonus Fun Fact: I’m in a local band, Bears Of Manitou. I made a promise to myself when I started working with Uber three years ago that I wouldn’t give up on my music and i’ve been able to keep playing shows through it all.
