I built this site with passion sharing easy to understand tutorials.
A passion that became mixed in with Photoshop back in 1997. At the time I was taught Dreamweaver and built my first web page.
In late 2008 I had an impulse of wanting to be more creative again through web design (I had earlier done other things). I began working as a media teacher in a high school in Oslo, Norway, and began also creating video tutorials. Some of these are still up on my youtube channel.
At the beginning of 2011 my girlfriend took a look at WordPress and showed it to me as she needed some help. I had earlier looked at WordPress but thought it was just not good enough to use. When she asked for help I look a closer look at WordPress again and this time was impressed by what I saw. I helped my girlfriend with her private blog and began researching. I came across Thematic and created a few test sites with it and enjoyed learning about WordPress. A few months passed and then themify.me came across my radar and I began using a child theme of the theme Basic from themify for various web sites.
I began working freelance as an Adobe software instructor teaching Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Flash. I also received a 7 month media teaching assignment at Noroff a private high school in downtown Oslo. When the 7 months were almost over the students tried very hard to get me hired. I have been back on occasion as a substitute teacher.
I work full time as a freelance web designer and instructor teaching Adobe software and WordPress. On the side I work as a media/design teacher at NKI. Norways biggest online education provider.
In 2017 and onward I began to more steadily volunteer working with design and features in WordPress core, and have since then contributes a portion of my time to helping to improve WordPress.
This site as you now see it is the third version since it originally was uploaded in 2011. I am glad to now have finally transferred, updated and also deleted some of the older tutorials. As some of the past tutorials are just not valid today as WordPress grows and evolves.
