Being of a multi-cultural background (Filipino/Dutch), Gerard has hosted multiple events for the Filipino Community and MC’d the Auckland Town Hall for the Loboc Children’s Choir tour of New Zealand in 2015.

"Gerard worked with us on our popular dog events summer tour for families and their dogs. From the 7 events he worked, it’s clear that he has a natural gift of the gab and knack on the microphone. Whether it’s MC’ing to adults, kids or running impromptu high energy competitions with dogs big and small, Gerard knows how to work a crowd in an enthusiastic, yet professional manner." - The In Group
