It was 1975, in the city of Genk in Belgium, when a special child was born. He took his first steps into the world of magic at 9 years old, motivated by his desire to learn more and by the box of 100 magic tricks that his parents had given him as a present, after seeing the interest he had shown in magic from an early age.
As with any other magician, his first appearances in public was before family and friends, who saw that in the difficult and selective world of magic there was space for a new magician.
Some years later, combining his job as an entertainment’s officer and presenter in di ... fferent hotels in Spain, he met the incomparable Magician Cobra, for whom Gerard has great admiration and has developed a lasting friendship.
It is the Magician Cobra who is solely responsible for what was a hobby to become Gerard’s way of earning a living. As such, he would like to take the opportunity to thank him here.
After having obtained a solid foundation in the world of magic, Gerard wanted to broaden his knowledge and decided to attend various World Congresses for magic where he would find some of the best magicians in the world.
In 1999 he attended the French national congress in Perpignan and in 2003 the world congress in Las Vegas.
