Born and raised in Japan, Gerard Collier moved to Hawaii at the age of 13. Growing up, his love for cars led him to pursue a career as an Automotive Technician, which he later decided to switch to a major in Travel & Tourism. Gerard started working at multiple restaurants during high school, starting as a dishwasher, line cook and then moving on to the front of the house. He began working as a polisher at the world-renowned Roy’s and eventually worked his way up to bartender. He also helped open and manage a well-known teppan-yaki restaurant from Tokyo in Waikiki. In 2011, Gerard left Hawaii to continue his career in the food and beverage industry and found his way to the Corner House team where his fresh, seasonal take on cocktails is the perfect compliment to Chef Selby’s food.
