I love teaching people!

I am a 28 year old, self taught web designer and teacher from the North of Ireland!

My hobbies include, web design animation, beatboxing and being social but my number one hobby is teaching people new tricks!

I have been building websites both personally and professionally for more than 6 years and all of the information contained in my training videos has been learned through trial and error by yours truly!

My website letsbuildwp (.com) has helped nearly 3 thousand people build a website and I am hoping I can double than number (at least) by utilizing Udemy!

I look forward to helping you create a website or blog that you can be proud of!

Until Next Time,
Martie Dread.

PS

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask - I will always do my best to help my students personally.
