Gabriel Bell

A born know-it-all, Gabriel grew up reading the encyclopedia in bed and comics in math class. He pursued a PhD. in Philosophy, until he thought better of it and dove headfirst into publishing. He still reads the encyclopedia before drifting off to sleep in Brooklyn, though. 


  • Gabriel has edited for, Voctiv, CITY Magazine, Details and many others
  • His writing appears on Refinery29, Nylon, the New York Post, and elsewhere
  • Gabriel has been writing for The Spruce since December 2018


A stint at CITY Magazine helped school him in luxury lifestyle, gear, fashion, culture, and travel coverage, something that served him well at Refinery29, Details, Nylon, and other publications. Editorial positions at and Vocativ have proven he's just as capable at hard news, political, and entertainment coverage.
