Born in St. Vincent, Bernard’s mother moved him and their family over to Laventille, Trinidad when he was eleven. He was educated in Trinidad. Around the age of twenty-five, he moved to Massachusetts, United States and lived there for a certain number of years. For unknown reasons, he found himself inhabiting the streets of Springfield and was later deported back to Trinidad once again. He has been living on Trinidad’s streets since. Some claim he is crazy but he disagrees. It however remains a sore topic for him.
