What makes me qualified to teach you?

I'm a self-taught video editor and full time vlogger that started off like you!

In 2016, I had zero video editing experience, no laptop, no students and no YouTube channel. Fast forward to April 2021, I have;

  • 650+ videos on my vlogging YouTube channel

  • Almost 12,000 YouTube subscribers with over 7.44 million minutes watched

  • 275,000+ students in my online video courses

  • Over 5,000 reviews

Trust me, as I review my stats it sounds crazy to me too! I never expected in a million years to be in my current position with these achievements. I started with nothing. If I can do it, I am confident that you can do it too.

What Makes This Course Different?

My ambition with this course is to take 5 years of my video editing knowledge and experience, and put it in an easy-to-follow course so you can learn in 1 week what has taken the last 5 years to learn. This course is the most comprehensive beginner editing course where, by the end of the course, you'll feel confident editing your own amazing video projects.
