Alexander Oni

The Web Monkey Academy

Hi there my name is Alexander Oni. I am a professional web developer living in the United States of America. I currently work for a small web development company where I build websites for clients using the latest in web technology.

I have been building websites for the past 7 years now and have been working exclusively with WordPress for almost 4 years. My love for web development and teaching people how to build websites drove me to make my Udemy course on web development.

I am also a cyber security expert and have a masters degree in Information Security.

I enjoy watching football, movies and playing chess.

Feel free to send me a message if you would like to know more.

Thank you for stopping by once again and I hope to hear from you soon.
