About The Writer

B8E4334D-2550-4167-A788-8B900DA93924_LivelyGabriella M Geisinger is a born-and-bred New Yorker, former compeitive swimmer, and coffee lover. She attended the United Nations International School before heading to Connecticut College for her BA. There, Gabriella worked with the community theatre, Flock Theatre, garnering her college’s Margery F. Masinter Endowed Internship Award for outstanding work in the arts community. Her senior thesis was an interview-based play titled Life With Three Little Letters, crafted from over a dozen interviews with New London AIDS Service Organisation members and clients.

Upon graduation, Gabriella interned at SPIN Magazine, where she was the only non-editorial intern to be featured on the website. This sparked a career in music journalism. She has over 50 “Top 5” Listicles published, alongside viral interviews, album reviews, a plethora of op-ed pieces, and many other music related pieces.

She moved to London to pursue an MA in Creative Writing: Narrative Nonfiction from City, University of London, and graduated having completed a sixty thousand word memoir-dissertation The Many Lives of my Father. She continued to build an expansive freelance writing career. Branching out from music was the next step, and Gabriella has written about art festivals, politics for the Evening Standard, and personal essays, amongst much more.

Currently residing in South London, Gabriella has started the training journalism program at the Press Association and writes about the things most important to her — social justice issues, particularly women’s rights, and arts & culture (pop and otherwise). You can ask her anything you like via email or social media. Check out her twitter for her character-limited thoughts on plenty of topics, from Great British Bake Off to Identity Politics, instagram for photos of what she’s up to, and last.fm for the music she’s currently digging. Above all else, they will feature the latest content she’s published. ☆
