We both enjoy the outdoors, we live very close to the woods in a small village in Belgium. Willem is an absolutely lousy cook, but makes up for that by helping me out with all issues involving wires and/or cables and things with an apple on it. He cleans my car, makes me laugh, supports me in everything I do. He has been self employed ever since he left school, he just jumped right in. I admire him for that. He helped me build this blog and convinced me I should move forward with it.
I have always worked in the music industry. At first at a record company in Brussels but I decided to go solo in 2008. Since then I have been a freelance PR person for artists, festivals, events, or any project that gets me excited. Music has always been a part of my professional live and I am very grateful for that, working as a promoter/publicist just never really felt like work. “The only way to do great work is to love what you do”, Steve Jobs was right about that.
And then there’s our dog Dexter, a proud Vizsla. He is turbulent, jumpy and tireless. But also sticky like velcro, he will always manage to lay himself on you regardless of what you are doing. He is my running buddy and (oh cliche) my best friend. He accepted Jackson right away. We were cautious to give Dexter the same amount of attention as before the baby was born, so there is no jealousy. I just love it when Jackson reaches out for Dexter and carefully touches him, they do staring competitions as well, Jackson usually wins…
I am convinced they will be the best of friends.
