Course Instructor
I have been building websites for almost 20 years. I've written thousands of lines of code, and launched countless sites for my clients... Through the years, I've had so many conversations with other creatives feeling a little lost on what to do about a website. I love to give free advice and I often do... but it has it's limits and at the same time hiring me, or any web developer, is often cost prohibitive to someone trying to get started — so I've come up with a solution, the DIY Website Course!

What it's not

This is not a marketing course — I'm not going to guarantee you'll grow on social media, or gain email followers. Those courses are a dime a dozen and some of them worth while, but I don't consider myself to be a marketer. I'm a technologist and I'll certainly cover the how-tos from a technical perspective on things like SEO and collecting emails, but my goal for you in this course is that you will have a solid understanding of web technology so that you can build your own site with confidence.
