I've always tried to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include mountain biking, nerding out on personal finance, traveling to new places, watching sports (huge baseball fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. Most days you can find me spending quality time with my lovely wife and our cat.

In 2011, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television Production at Loyola Marymount University - one of the top 10 film schools in the country. While there, I was fortunate to make documentaries in Switzerland, Germany, Mexico, and India. After graduating, I worked at Participant Media shooting and editing short-form documentaries for their website TakePart. I followed that stint with a contract at Stanbridge College where I discovered online learning. I helped pioneer their online school there. Most recently, I spent 2 years working at University of California Berkeley with the media team. Throughout this time I built my Video School Online brand to teach others the skills that I have. In May of 2015, I left the 9-5 world to make my own path. Since then, I've made more money, worked fewer hours, and only have done the things I love each day.

I want to show you how to be a better creator, make money from your creations, and live the life you dreamed of.

    Nice work

    Very basic, and simple. Nice info!

    • Laurier Tiernan

    Very Good for Beginners

    I was actually looking for a course that would help me to build a website more from scratch, as opposed to from templates...but this is excellent for beginners and I did learn a lot anyway. Thank you for putting this course together.

    • Alaina Naz


    The whole session went great. I've learned a lot. This is the first ever course I've taken. I had interest in web designing but didn't knew anything about it. After this course I'm confident to build my own site. I had some confusion before the course which I'm clear now. And yes the course did met my expectations. Thanks a lot

    • Marko

    Very good for total beginners on WP

    If you are just starting with WP this tutorial will give you good info to hit the ground running asap.

    • Franck Rafiou

    It's Good for Novice to start being self sufficient

    I really enjoyed the course because it allowed me to really understand where to find stuffs in WP or how to install WP on bluehost.

    I don't understand people saying the course is boring. Come on guys have you ever been in school? Rate the course by it's content not by your emotional attachment to it.

    If you search some kind of shortcuts on how to create a website and some sort of hand-in-hand how to guide, this course is NOT for you. It basically shows you how to host a website & how to start using wordpress. After the course, you start being selfsufficient.

    Philip Ebiner, Thank you for the values in your course and I unfortunately already had a domain so I couldn't start by using your affiliate Link.
