    as well as

    if i am referring to a present tense before "as well as"
    should i change the verb after it into a gerund or just put a present tense to keep a parallel structure?

    I think the phrase "as well as" has become a replacement for the word "and" and "and and not only" . If you use the same verb between "as well as", the verb form should stay the same.
    ex.
    I like to eat oranges as well as I like to eat apples.

    If you decide to change the verb, then it can be changed to a gerund.
    Ex.

    "I like to eat oranges as well as pigging (-ing) out on apples".
    "His death leaves a gap in our lives as well as creating sadness and loneliness".
