Video Editing Made Easy

Learn from my experience in Education, Information Technology and Videomaking!


University Education:

I started teaching as a Teaching Fellow in Mathematics & Computing Science at Wollongong University in 1987.


Video Editing & Production:

I've been filming videos with iPhones ever since the iPhone 4. Lugging around a DSLR camera plus lenses while travelling is not a lot of fun nor convenient. The iPhone is now the only camera I use because I never leave home without it! I use it in my home studio for talking-head and green screen videos.


My Courses:

Enrol in one of my courses today - and let me help you with your videos!

I encourage all my students (and non-students) to reach out to me with any issues or suggestions. Please contact me through Udemy or the links below my profile picture. I'm here to help you!
