Gabriel Clarke
Founder & Chief Executive Officer
Angel Investor 

Your journey, with expert guidance. 

Imagine achieving life's milestones without spending a fortune. Imagine a breathtaking wedding, then dashing off to an unforgettable honeymoon, or owning a home that reflects your unique style.

This is the vision that drives Gabriel Clarke, a 20 year tech veteran and the Founder & CEO of Clarke Equity Group.


Gabriel was recruited from Purdue University's School of Technology by Dell Inc. He tackled complex challenges for renowned organizations such as Disney, Texas A & M, Johns Hopkins, and several other Fortune 500s, honing his skills and expertise.


Gabriel's ambition wasn't confined to the corporate world. He envisioned a future filled with financial freedom and the ability to help others realize that their significant life events are possible. 


With a strategic approach, he saved then invested his income, starting with designing and building his first custom home in his 20s, then saved enough capitol to design & build another custom home in his 30s. This entrepreneurial spirit continued as he expanded his real estate portfolio which ultimately provided the freedom for him to retire from his tech career in his early forties. 

Witnessing the inflated costs associated with life's most cherished moments, Gabriel was compelled to make them accessible to everyone. This led to the creation of Clarke Equity Group, a company built on the belief that life's most precious moments, should not cost a fortune. 

Clarke Equity Group disrupts the traditional model by self performing cabinetry work and empowering individuals & families with expert guidance, before approaching contractors. This innovative approach saves valuable time, thousands of dollars, and most importantly, brings peace of mind throughout these significant life experiences.


Gabriel's story is one of determination, strategic planning, and a genuine desire to empower others. He doesn't just offer services; he offers the opportunity to make life goals possible.
