Gabriel Granillo is the digital editor at Portland Monthly, which means he’s looking at a computer screen for most of the day. He contributes to and edits the magazine’s digital content, and manages its social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. He has a degree in journalism from Northern Arizona University, and spent two years as a writer/editor at Flagstaff Live!, Mountain Living Magazine, and the Arizona Daily Sun before joining the Portland Monthly team.

While not scouring the murky backend channels of Portland Monthly’s content management system in a dark, fishbowl-like office, Gabriel can be found perusing the moss-ridden streets of Portland, forever in search of a good story, good music, and damn good coffee.
