Hi I’m Nate Cooper. I’m an adjunct professor at The School of Visual Arts in New York City. I teach WordPress and PHP at Noble Desktop. I also teach Search Marketing and WordPress at 3rdWard, General Assembly and Mediabistro. I wrote a comic book about how to build websites called Build Your Own Website Adventure!
I like tackling big problems. I do this by connecting people to each other and encouraging them to think outside the box. I believe the world we live in is complicated but the more we’re able to connect with each other on a human-level the closer we’ll get to improving and simplifying life. I started Reboot Workshop with Jim Hopkson. Reboot is an organization and conference that brings together thought-leaders and experts to encourage entrepreneurship. I came up with the idea for Happstr and managed a team of experts on the StartupBus to encourage global happiness because I think you can achieve success through happiness. We were nominated for a humanizing technology award from BigThink. I also successfully funded a Kickstarter to make a web comic to help beginners to build a websites called Build Your Own Website Adventure!
I’ve written guest posts for Skillshare and the NYTech Women. I’ve contributed to Mashable and am a regular contributor to the Freelance Strategist. My blog natecooper.net has been going strong since 2005. One post I wrote on education went viral in 2012. Check out my writer’s profile on Contently. I’m also currently writing an instructional comic book on building a website for No Starch Press. Read more here.
