Gabriel is from Jerusalem, Israel. He began playing tennis at the age of eight and learned the game at The Academy of Tennis, Jerusalem. He specializes in working with our youngest players on fundamental skill development, and has become an integral part of our flourishing 10 and Under programs at Gotham Stadium. In his own words, Gabriel's professional philosophy is "to help develop a lasting love for the game in our youngest players. The best way to achieve this goal is to blend the right amounts of technical skill building with fun games." Gabriel has considerable international teaching experience, working as an instructor in Israel, Mexico and France, as well as participating in continuing education seminars in Germany and the U.S.
