I 'm a 30 year old, self taught web designer and teacher from the North of Ireland!

My hobbies include, web design, animation, and beatboxing... but my number one hobby is teaching people new tricks!

I've been building websites both personally and professionally for more than 7 years and all of the information contained in my training videos has been learned through trial and error (by yours truly!)

I look forward to helping you create a website or blog that you can be proud of!

Until Next Time,
