About Gerardo

When I was four years old my parents took me to watch Jurassic Park at the theatres. My mother told me I was in awe the entire time. Ever since I've been fascinated with film and telling stories. By the time I was a teenager I had written three “novels”. I used elastic bands to bind them.

Looking back, I realize I was writing my own version of a screenplay as I would give them MPA ratings, created soundtracks, credited myself as the writer, editor, actor, director, and so on. One of the "novels" was a sequel to Jurassic Park. (Which I would still be highly interested in developing)

I was born in Toronto, Ontario. I'm Italian-Canadian. I was raised in an organization that I would soon come to realize was a cult. After life-long personal and family hardships, I was able to leave it. It was the best decision of my life because this gave me time for self-reflection. I was able to be my true self and rediscover my passions. Everything that had been internally suppressed was now liberated and I was free. My family would slowly but surely follow. I truly believe that these life experiences have helped me to become the individual and the writer that I am today. Now film is my religion.

This journey led me to fall in love with the writing process all over again. I haven't stopped writing since. I love learning and I continue to hone my craft.

Though my work is fiction, I draw a lot of inspiration from my personal life in the concepts, worlds, and characters I create. This gives them a more engaging emotional pull which creates further intrigue.

Some of my work: "The Faith". A feature film. Genre: Drama, psychological thriller.
"The Real Ones" - An eight-episode series. The Pilot has garnered great industry feedback and coverage.

I have other projects in my portfolio that I'm constantly working on in various genres and formats such as feature film scripts and other Television series.

My goal is to make Screenwriting a full-time career. I'm extremely enthusiastic about my projects and I'm seeking literary representation. I would love to connect with you if you resonate and can help steer me in the right direction.
