Educator/Publisher/Entrepeneur

I have played video games for years - I am also an educator & entrepeneur. Over the past few years, I've been focusing my efforts towards combining these two seemingly polar opposite ideas in an effort to make learning for fun for kids. So far, my efforts have shown positive improvement, and I hope to continue that trend with my courses here on Udemy. The courses which I upload will typically be related to education and success, and will hopefully be fun for you to watch and listen to. Enjoy!
