Instructor Biography

Brandon Bolin, Freelance Design & Developer

Currently running my own freelance website design and development company. This is a full time job and has been for the past few year! It is a wonderful and exciting industry that is ever growing!

Most of my work is in development of custom WordPress websites, including customized blogs, corporate website, and small-mid commerce websites built from the ground up. It has been a pleasure to show people WordPress isn't always just pre-made templates and instead can become fully branded and designed from scratch.

For the past three years I have been actively teaching at a local University. These classes include Photoshop, Website Development, SEO, and Intro to WordPress.

I am always looking to grow and diversify, thus trying to develop some new and intriguing courses here on Udemy.
