Hi! I'm Tony. I love to read, write and teach and you could definitely call me a bit of geek. I love all things to do with programming, productivity, books and the internet.

Previously I have run my own software business and won several awards from, most innovative startup to best product. After finding out the hard way just how stressful growing a startup into a business can be I have researched all things to do with productivity and I love helping other become more productive and avoid the mistakes I have made.

I'm passionate about teaching and I love to hear back from my students with any questions or ideas on how to improve my courses or create new ones.

My courses teach you how to programme and become more productive and you will not believe the freedom that these skills can bring. Sign up and find out for yourself why so many people are taking and recommending my courses. I genuinely believe that I have something to offer you and if you don't agree, I'll happily refund your money. 

Sign up to my courses and join me in this amazing adventure today.
