As some struggle to discover one passion, Gabo finds two

Story posted November 9, 2014 in News by Akash Ghai

Gabriel Humberto Ortiz (Gabo) is an undergraduate student enrolled at Penn State University who comes from a family of accomplished scientists. He's the lead guitarist of the local State College band Mariners & Muses and hopes to make it big in the music industry. He says he doesn't believe pursuing music through an academic degree will help him doing so.

Despite receiving formal training in jazz during high school in Puerto Rico, where he grew up and acquiring a strong passion for music, Gabo still feels strongly about earning a post-doctorate in astronomy.
