Some people may call me a geek which I take no offense to. Being a tech enthusiast at a young age, I am a blogger, graphic & website designer, YouTube video maker, and most of all a total tech enthusiast. At such a young age I am totally obsessed with blogging, developing web-sites using CSS, HTML, xhtml, WordPress, and making money online. Not only do I like creating websites I also like using Adobe Photoshop to create graphic designs which are incorporated in my websites. But most people know me from watching my YouTube videos that I film and edit for my YouTube page which include tech tutorials, reviews, unboxings, and anything else related to tech. I have been doing graphic & website design for many years, learning the trade from his older brother. Whom owns his own graphic & website design company.
