Before launching Gordo Entertainment, Gil started his career working for Peter Engel Productions on the NBC sitcom SAVED BY THE BELL. After only two years at Peter Engel Productions, Gil was elevated to run post production, overseeing 5 network series.
Soon after that, Gil started producing and quickly established himself as the go-to producer for all studio, hidden camera and reality based shows for both broadcast and cable networks.
Having produced hundreds of hours of television, including OWN’s breakout series LOVE AND MARRIAGE: HUNTSVILLE, TLC's hit series LA INK and Food Network's long-running series, MYSTERY DINERS, Gil is now focused on building GORDO ENTERTAINMENT into a production company that develops and produces high quality content for Latino and general market audiences.

Gordo Entertainment handles every aspect of production from prep to final delivery.
Soon after launching Gordo Entertainment, Gil extended his long term producing relationship with Development Executive/Producer Aaron Sandler. Partnering with Aaron not only expanded the production services offered to third parties, but the two began developing new projects under the Gordo Entertainment banner for both the general and Latino markets.
