Hey, I’m Bernard!

Kortemark, Belgium · Member since December 2012

I'm married to my lovely Mexican wife Maria who I've met through Airbnb when I was traveling through Mexico. How cute things can get :). Together we run 2 holiday houses in Ypres while my mum takes care of a holiday cottage in Handzame near Diksmuide.

The cottage in Handzame is an old house which my mother completely renovated. Kudos to her for the excellent job she did. The 2 houses in Ypres were bought a few years ago and have been completely renovated afterwards. We all have a social virus and are open for a good chat on local history and life in general.

So far we have had the pleasure getting hundreds of visitors from allover the world who stayed 1 night to 7 weeks even.

On a personal side I co-run the record label Alfa Matrix producing, releasing and distributing the music from over 40 bands including FRONT 242, RECOIL, PSY'AVIAH, AYRIA and many many more. Next to that I also am the chief editor of the online magazine Side-Line informing about industrial and electro music news, and that since 1999. And finally I also run a website on Hergé's compagnon Bob De Moor who played a big role in the Tintin albums since the early 50s.

While I'm professionally more busy with electronic music, I tend to prefer the more bluesy, jazzy side of music history during the evenings whilst reading a good book on politics, or a novel with a historic background. Dave Brubeck and Billie Holiday are the first names that come to mind. My wife on the other hand has a more latin temperament and as a result the tortillas, tamales, caldos are keeping me more than up to date with the delicious Mexican cuisine.
