About Kevin Goldman
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1980 my family and I left to immigrate to the United States just prior to the ending of the Apartheid in the late 1980s. Shortly after high school I grew greatly interested in computer science and web development. Utilizing what resources and technologies I had immediate access to, I honed as many skills as possible before attending various technical schools. All the while working in many fields for varying industries and climbing up the technical ladders.
My resume below reflects 15+ years of technical experience. The flare for technicalities flourished into a healthy relationship with amateur photography and cinematography. Please enjoy my photographical journeys here at www.theaccidentalphotos.com as well as my writings on the subjects of depression and anxiety with methods of combatants here at www.iheartkevin.com.
