About Me

Hi! If you've made it this far, you already know my name is Gabriel Schicchi, and probably that I'm a Brazilian-American writer based in San Francisco. Here's some stuff you might not know:

My short stories have been published (usually under my nom de plume, Gabriel da Silva-Schicchi) in Capsule Stories, Peripheral Surveys, and as a collection (available on Amazon). I write literary fiction with themes of human fallibility, romantic discord, and the purposefulness of art. In January 2021, frustrated by the negative cultural landscape, I founded the arts journal Gush as a venue for celebrating exceptional art in any medium.

I've been the writing assistant to Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright Nilo Cruz, helping him write two commissioned miniseries and providing edits and feedback on his plays and poetry. I have collaborated with others, including producer-director Julie Pacino, to turn their creative ideas into finished products. I'm also a singer-songwriter on the Shorewave Records roster, and my recordings are available on any streaming service.

As a freelancer, I've provided brand development, copywriting, content marketing, and editing services to businesses such as payroll provider Gusto, fashion website Luka, financial firm Cassona Capital, and many others. In addition, I provide grant writing and PR services to Miami Childrens Theater/Miami Stage Company.

I graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor’s in Liberal Arts from Harvard Extension School.
