Gabriela VatuSoftpedia editor profile and article archive

Hey! I’m Gaby and most of the time I can be found in the Webmaster and Internet news section of Softpedia.

As such, I will always bring you the latest information about all that goes on in the “webverse” and the companies linked to it.

In my life outside Softpedia, I enjoy spending my time reading, writing and playing some video games, such as WOW. Dancing and music are also among my passions, although I couldn’t carry a tune if my life depended on it.
