Gabrielle Semi-Useful Info :)

If I'm not designing, I'm out running, skiing, hiking, coaching youth hoops, reading, scanning design mags, battling the home improvement list, superfluous entertainment trivia and enjoying our beautiful county.

Gabrielle Earth Conscious

I'm committed to reducing my carbon footprint by recycling, composting, driving a clean burning vehicle, eating local, buying local, promoting a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise an avoiding all flesh except for the occasional fish from the sea.

And I'm proud to annouce that my site is powered entirely by wind energy.
