Gerald is a consultant based in Atlantic Canada. He is a writer, artist and development strategist who helped pioneer design in northern Ontario and with his partners built the region’s largest advertising agency in the early 1990s.

In a career that spans four decades, he helped design a tethered submarine, marketed a major national fast food franchise, launched Northern Ontario’s first international tourism brand, successfully campaigned to get a full med school campus for northwestern Ontario, managed economic development for a small town on the East Coast, managed a provincial political party, built an in-house creative agency for the City of Edmonton, and has won numerous advertising awards.

After three years in Alberta, he and his family have returned to New Brunswick where they live on a seaside farm near St. Andrews by-the-Sea.
