Multipassionate Entrepreneur

I'm a teacher for Arts and German. I also have a Diploma in Multimedia Design and a Bachelor in Information Technology (Major in Webdesign, University of Phoenix).

I have several websites I make a living from. I mostly sell digital products and do web design for clients. I absolutely love marketing and have a long experience in doing that online.

I have started my first website in 2006, it was a hobby site which still earns money until today.

With a background in teaching and being a Mac enthusiast creating courses here on Udemy came up naturally. You will find here all kind of courses around Internet Marketing, Webdesign, Graphics & Mac Computers.

I love reading, writing, and all kinds of creative things.

I've first studied energy system electric but worked then as an administrator for computers, both Windows and Mac Computers. I know both systems inside out. Today I repair computer systems for small and large companies, both in hard- and software. I also help people to get started with their computer and teach them how to use the software they have. I also visit my customers to set up all their telecommunication systems.

While teaching, I try hard to give my students some real-life examples to make them understand the essentials of computer technology. I know that abstract thinking doesn't come easy so I always try to connect my teaching with real life experiences. This way my students can easily imagine what is going on on their computer.

I've also trained myself to use Adobe Programs and know a lot about Photoshop, Lightroom and all the other Programs of the Adobe Creative Suit.

I enjoy photography and sometimes I take pictures and do panorama photography for the websites of my clients.

So for years I have been teaching others now how to set up and use their computers. Now it's time for me to go digitally so people can watch the courses over and over again.

I'm for and into everything creative and believe that everything is figureoutable - if I can do it, you can do it as well and I show you how.
