Content Creator on YouTube

Hey there, my name is Kris. I have been making a living off of the internet for the past 6 years with YouTube being my main source of income. During that time I was able to grow two YouTube channels to over 900,000 subscribers and reach 320,000,000 million video views worldwide. My videos have been seen all around the world on a variety of entertainment platforms including the Chinese video sharing sites Youku & Tudou where I have amassed nearly 30,000 subscribers and nearly 20,000,000 video views.

Video creation is my passion and sharing that with you comes a close second. My goal as an instructor is to educate a new generation of YouTube content creators who are having issues getting started or who may have started but don't know where to go next. My courses are aimed to be beginner friendly and to help even the most experienced.
