Gerry attended the local primary school and later Kormilda College in Darwin. 

Like many Tiwi’s, he is a talented AFL player  and has played for three local teams, Pumorelli, Tuyu and Mulluwurri magpies. As he gets older he has started to focus less on playting football and more on creating art and his Tiwi culture.

Gerry started working at Jilamara in late 2012 under the suggestion of his friend Lance Tungutalum. He had also watched his grandfather  Brendan Mungatopi carve ironwood pukumani poles during the 80’s and 90’s when he was much younger.

Gerry comes from a long line of great artists on his Mum’s side, the Kerinauia family, including, Alan and Cyril Kerinauia who work at Tiwi Design on Bathurst Island and Raelene and Dymphna Kerinauia on Melville Island.

Gerry enjoys carving ironwood Tutini poles and Tiwi Tokwampini (Tiwi birds).
