Hi, my name’s Kevin and I’m a Linux IT consultant originally from London, England but I’ve lived in Europe, US and Asia over many years.
I studied Economics & Politics at the University of Bath, graduating with an upper second class degree. I also did a Diploma in German, plus a Postgraduate course in Marketing. I spent a few years working in the media sales sector in London before moving to Berlin, Germany.
The Web and Internet was just taking off and I wanted to be part of it. After training at Siemens to become a Unix IT Systems Administrator I worked at the University of Potsdam, before switching to become a freelance IT contractor.
Since then I’ve contracted at many big-name companies, among them Unilever, Dresdner Bank, ING Bank, JD Edwards, EMBL European Molecular Biology Lab, Merck Pharmaceutical, 1&1 Internet, and others, as well as a number of small startups.
More recently I was contracted with the IT systems house ISB Karlsruhe, working onsite at the Baden-Wuerttemberg Land government Highways Department (Landesstelle fuer Strassentechnik) in Stuttgart, Germany.
In my free time I love traveling, Asian and vegetarian food, sport (running, judo, mountain biking), languages, music (mostly indie rock and electronic), as well as English comedy and good films.
