Even though the hardware used is massively outdated (they explain the Hero 3), it is still a great basic course to get you up to speed on the GoPro cameras, general video shooting guidelines, and the editing software. The only thing that bothered me was the messy fingernails in the close-ups (sorry, Phil's brother...).
Great beginners class, got me going on the basics, as a first-time GoPro user, it was just what I needed, thx!!!
great beginner class!

My passion is inspiring people through online courses. I've been creating things (videos, photos, businesses, projects) since I was a young child. I've created (produced, shot, edited) thousands of videos over the past five years. Now it is time to teach you!

What would you like to learn?

Would you like to learn motion graphics in After Effects?

Would you like to learn how to shoot & edit videos like a pro?

Would you like to take better photographs?

Would you like to make money teaching online courses like I do?

If you want to do any of these things, just enroll in the course.  And I'm always improving my courses so that they stay up to date and the best that they can be. Check them out, and enroll today!


I've always tried to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include mountain biking, nerding out on personal finance, traveling to new places, watching sports (huge baseball fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. Most days you can find me spending quality time with my lovely wife and our cat.

In 2011, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television Production at Loyola Marymount University - one of the top 10 film schools in the country. While there, I was fortunate to make documentaries in Switzerland, Germany, Mexico, and India. After graduating, I worked at Participant Media shooting and editing short-form documentaries for their website TakePart. I followed that stint with a contract at Stanbridge College where I discovered online learning. I helped pioneer their online school there. Most recently, I spent 2 years working at University of California Berkeley with the media team. Throughout this time I built my Video School Online brand to teach others the skills that I have. In May of 2015, I left the 9-5 world to make my own path. Since then, I've made more money, worked fewer hours, and only have done the things I love each day.

I want to show you how to be a better creator, make money from your creations, and live the life you dreamed of.
