Gerald's fascination with the Spanish language began long before he was an adult. It became especially relevant as conflicts in Latin America drew his attention as among the key issues in U.S. politics. The more he learned, the more also grew his appreciation for the language and the people who speak it. He begain writing for ThoughtCo's first predecessor in 1989, eventually creating one of the Internet's most thorough resources for Spanish students.


Gerald has a bachelor of arts in political science and has studied Spanish in Guatemala and Ecuador.
