Doormat | GABRIEL BAUTISTA
Gabriel Bautista started theater his junior year of high school because he wanted to be Darth Vader in a Star Wars parody. So, of course he signed up and got it. When he came to college he was a pre-med major on a physical therapy track... that all ended with gen chem, so he started pursing his major and theatre arts and now he's here.
