WRITER / EDITOR / PRODUCER / HOST / HOT DOG ENTHUSIAST

 
 
 

Hi! I’m Gaby.

If long lists of identifiers aren’t your thing, basically, I tell stories for print and TV.

(And I love hot dogs. Even though they’re probably killing me.)

My most recent work has appeared on VICE & HBO's Emmy and Peabody-winning nightly program, VICE News Tonight, covering music, movies, art, and everything else under the massive umbrella of “culture.”

Before that, I was a correspondent reporter for MTV News, where I interviewed a lot of artists, hosted live special events (including a few VMAs red carpets), and created a profile series about women in the music industry called Seen & Heard. I also spearheaded much of MTV News’ climate coverage at the time, including a nationally broadcast conversation with former Vice President Al Gore for MTV's An Inconvenient Special town hall.

I graduated from the University of Virginia as an English and Biology double major. I’ve lived in five different countries and six different states. And my favorite Blink-182 album is Dude Ranch.

MEGAN AMRAM WANTS AN EMMY

VICE NEWS TONIGHT ON HBO (2018)

A$AP FERG + DAPPER DAN

MTV NEWS (2017)

In 2017, Gucci ripped off a classic Dapper Dan look during a runway show, creating the perfect opportunity to pair the legendary designer with rapper A$AP Ferg (whose late father worked for Dan) for a conversation about legacy and the cycle of influence in fashion.
