Hi, my name’s Kevin.
I’m from London, England but I’ve been expat for many years, living in Europe and as well as US and the Far East at different times.
For many years I’ve been a self-employed IT consultant, working mainly for big name corporate clients as well as smaller startups.
My background isn’t anything special. I’m not from a wealthy family or anything like that. Due to circumstances at the time I left school with no qualifications. I studied in the evenings at further education college (similar to US community college) to gain the qualifications to enter university, where I graduated in Economics & Politics, followed by a postgraduate course in Marketing.
After spending a crazy couple of years working in media sales in central London, I left the UK and moved to Berlin, Germany. There I did a graduate training course in IT at Siemens and worked in the IT sector for many years, initially as a salaried employee and later as a freelance contractor.
Through my IT freelancing I got to see the insides of many big corporates and also smaller companies and startups. I enjoyed high earnings and was able to have more time off for vacations and travel than the average employee.
Along with my IT consulting work mainly in server management and systems engineering I also write content for global clients, mainly in the technical IT, blockchain tech, digital currency and investment sectors.
I’m also an active investor and financial market trader. This is the second pillar of my strategy. I trade in stocks, bonds, commodities, cryptocurrencies and even the occasional forex position.
I started BreakFreeRebel.com as a blog to accompany me on my journey toward financial autonomy and independence.
