Gabriella Gelir

In the words of Sally Field, “you like me! you really, really like me!”

If you're reading this bio, then chances are you’re curious to know more about the person behind the posts, so allow me to introduce myself!

Born an old-soul,

Ella-quent is my pen name. My real name is Gabriella, hence “ELLA-quent”. I am a 30 something polyglot, (former) Linguistics and Communication English professor, singer and Vintage Lifestyle blogger. Though a global citizen for the past 14 years, I am a Nuyorican by heart and have returned to my native home of New York after much globe trotting.

When I steal some down time, I enjoy writing my own music, scoring antique finds, using my husband’s stomach as testing grounds for a new recipe, and trying to solve the world’s problem’s over a plate of arroz con pollo.
