About Purple Hippo

A Quick History of Purple Hippo Teachable Academy.

Purple Hippo Teachable Academy is the culmination of an eight-year journey in and around the Teachable environment.


In 2014, I came across Fedora (its name back then) and decided to try my hand at online course creation. I started and stopped, tried this (WordPress guides) and that then eventually pushed out a 'how to' guide on the Teachable platform.


I continued to work at my full-time job, I had two kids and through all of it, never really put my whole heart into the online course business.


At some point during these few years, I started to work directly with Teachable in their Ambassador program. I, along with three other ambassadors would help Professional and High Volume plan members to understand how to make the most of their subscription.


In September 2017, I took six months off from my full-time employment to focus all my energy on the web development business I'd started. In March 2018, I left full-time work to focus entirely on my business.


Today, I'm a highly sought after web developer and recognised Teachable Expert that specialises and understands the Teachable platform. From time to time, Teachable themselves ask me to develop for some of their partner projects.

Why Purple Hippo?

Because Everyone Loves Anectodal Stories.

My two sons, Aethyn and Joshua, named my company with their first words. They were 'Purple' and 'Hippo' respectively and what better way to eulogise their first words than naming my Web Development Studio with those words.


The Teachable Platform has given me the freedom to spend more time with my kids and to allow me to develop these great sections and courses so everyone can benefit from fantastic designs for their schools.
