I help people make websites, create and sell online courses, and run online businesses by providing quality templates, easy-to-digest video courses, and 1-on-1 training.

 

Helping people to reach their dreams is my passion. Seeing others succeed at something makes me happy. It makes me feel I have succeed.

 

I have been designing websites for the past 15 years. I have used Wordpress, RapidWeaver, iWeb, Adobe Muse, Dreamweaver, but I got seriously interested in web design when I found Squarespace in 2012.

Squarespace is easy to use and very intuitive, but since it is a template-based solution, there are some limits to what I can design with it. So, at one point, I was looking for a website building, which could give me the freedom to create anything I want.

Where it all begins…

I am working on one of the first versions of Eldartech.com website in 2012. Eldartech was a popular technology blog, focusing on cloud computing, Apple, Google, and other cool technology topics of that time.

 

It was the beginning of 2015 when I found Blocs which is a visual web design app for macOS, that lets you make beautiful responsive websites without the need to write code. I liked the promo video, so I have purchased it. But, like any other tool, it requires some time to get used to it.

It took me a long time to get over the frustrations and learning curve, but I was finally able to get going with building websites in Blocs. A while later, I have started to communicate with other Blocs users, and I immediately felt that many of them have the same frustration as I had.

I have decided to find a way to help these people, and in the summer of 2016, I have launched the Blocs Templates to share my work with other users. In the beginning, it was just three simple templates, and today there are over 30 in over 60 different variations.

 

Blocs Templates

One of the first versions of the Blocs Templates website from 2016 represents what I like in web design: stylish simplicity and efficient minimalism.

 

A few months later, I have realized that many people were buying templates to learn Blocs. At that moment, I have decided to create a dedicated website for teaching Blocs, and a few sleepless months later, I have launched Blocs Master.

Since the release of Blocs Master, thousands of people have enrolled in Blocs Master video courses, which have over 280 quality videos covering various aspects of using Blocs. It felt amazing to help so many people.

 

Blocs Master

When I launched the Blocs Master project in 2017, the website had a beautiful dark theme, even before dark styles were trendy. Many things have changed since then, but I continue to make quality new tutorials for Blocs Master courses even these days, almost every week.

 

Then, I have used my experience with Blocs Master to create a similar project for Squarespace. At the beginning of 2018, I have launched Space Master which is a series of highly detailed videos designed to help people learn web design with Squarespace. It was also very successful.

 

If I had to describe my lifestyle in three words, it would be Efficiency, Simplicity, and Minimalism.

 

I have many ideas for new projects to help more people. If you can relate in any way, stay around, and join my newsletter, which is the primary tool I use to communicate with my audience. You can also follow me on TwitterFacebook, or subscribe to my YouTube channel.

If you ever have any questions or need help with building websites, please, feel free to schedule an online appointment or contact me at any time. I would be delighted to connect and do my best to help you because helping people like you is what makes me happy.
