Program Instructor + Video Editor

Hello my name is Christopher Young. I have a YouTube channel with over 1,000 Subscribers and I make weekly videos. I also am a big fan of technology and enjoy making videos. I am a great fan of new opportunity and ways to grow my brand and make money in the process. Everything I teach is self taught meaning I didn't have courses like any on Udemy when I wanted to learn. I make learning very simple and easy to understand. I have learned everything from Microsoft Word, a long time ago, to things like iMovie and I continue to learn new and useful tools that will improve workflow and productivity, And teach people in the process. I have taught lots of people how to use programs so they can be very successful. I have taught lots of people iMovie and they have now become very good with editing programs. I also have taught people programs and tutorials on my YouTube channel, these have been very successful. I also call my self a video editor because that is mainly my strong point.
