About Gabriel M Padilla
Gabriel M Padilla is a Cuban-American originally from rural Southern Oregon. His grandparents emigrated to the United States with the desire for a better life. Gabriel’s father was raised to believe you can achieve or become anything that you set your mind to. Gabriel, too, was raised with this positive mindset.
Over time, Gabriel came to a realization that not everybody encounters the same advantages or disadvantages. Still, his upbringing allowed him to address the discrepancies: “If that person is capable of doing this or achieving that, then why can’t I?”.
Gabriel’s optimism has led him to where he is today. At present, Gabriel M Padilla is a successful social media influencer, covering a wide range of interests from travel, men’s fashion, lifestyle, fitness, and even having a dog! His Instagram handles @GabrielMPadilla and @WithRoxy, which set him as a millennial family influencer and co-manager with his girlfriend, Monica Landén, has over 300,000 followers.
Gabriel’s career started out in a totally different direction. At 18 years old, he had his dreams set on making it as a model in Los Angeles. After two years being signed with multiple agencies in multiple markets, one could definitely say he achieved that dream! Fortunately for Gabriel, when the modeling industry began to fade, his instincts led him to pick up the rising trend of social media instead. He made the bold transition at the perfect time!
Gabriel hasn’t only found his stride as a renowned social media influencer, but also as a successful entrepreneur. He co-founded Model Citizen, a subscription box company that aspires to provide as many life-saving PPE in the hands of as many people as possible. The company operates on a 1-for-1 donation model wherein a mask is donated to frontline workers and communities in need for every single mask included in the boxes that the company sells.
Gabriel is truly well-rounded as he has also executed successful social media campaigns for online brands, musicians, models, actors, comedians, journalists, and many others in the media and entertainment industries through his digital marketing agency, Premier Branding.
