About the instructor •
When I was a kid, we had a desktop computer crammed next to the the furnace in a windowless basement room. I loved video games though, so I would spend hours on that computer playing The Sims and Roller Coaster Tycoon.
Unfortunately, our aging computer had trouble playing most games, and my family couldn’t afford better equipment. I was determined to play anyway, and so I would attempt to fix problems myself.
That determination would lead me to spend as many hours troubleshooting as I did actually playing games. I tried every solution I could find.
Eventually, after endless frustration and countless fixes, my persistence (read: stubbornness) would usually pay off, and I’d have a small breakthrough: My game would finally work.
It was in that basement office, struggling to get our outdated computer to cooperate, that I found my love for technology. Despite all the frustration, the excitement and pride I felt every time I solved a tech problem are what lit the fire.
Now, decades later, I’m blending my passion for tech, my experience as a middle school English and math teacher, and my excitement for creative entrepreneurship into my own web education business: Courage & Grow.
If you’re a Creative, and you want help with your website, you’re in the right place.
I can’t wait to work with you!
