Instructor Biography

Kurt Anderson, 4.0 Student, Efficiency Guru, Computer Scientist

4.0 Student with a passion for learning and teaching. Self-Taught Filmmaker, VFX artist, Web Designer and Adobe Production Premium Master.

Hey everyone, Kurt here, welcome to my little slice of the internet. I have been teaching myself different skills and techniques for as long as I can remember, and have mastered the technique of self-motivated learning.

Through self-motivated learning I have been able to teach myself a foreign language, start my own blog, do freelance work in both graphic design and VFX/Video Editing, make money in the stock market, live in a foreign country, work in an IT position, get a full ride scholarship to pursue a degree, maintain a 4.0 GPA in a difficult major, programmed an application, and so much more. And I’ll let you in on a little secret, I have done all of this…and I’m only 20. Once you get the motivation and the drive, the world is yours.

I think self-motivated learning is one of the most important things in life to learn, as it is the gateway to learning anything and everything. Knowledge is the true equalizer, paving the path to your dreams.

I’ve decided to take this knowledge and share it with the world, so you too can start living a fun and engaging life. My courses will be designed on learning the basics, so you can organize your life and start making the most of it.

I can’t wait to help you experience the path to your dreams, and the ability to achieve what you want in life.

So why not start now? Your dreams won’t get any closer by just thinking about them, take the plunge and I will guide you to success.

See you soon!

Kurt
