The Faces Behind Upskillwise

Catherine profile photoI am Catherine Cooke, and originally from London. Several years ago, I decided to travel to Spain, where I met Josep. After working several years as a design teacher, I jumped on a career change and started teaching Yoga. Later on, I became a freelance graphic designer too, with the help of Skillshare and Coursera to get my skills up to scratch. Initially, it wasn’t easy, like any career change, but perseverance and consistency is key. I feel really passionate about sharing the knowledge of developing your skills with online learning platforms.


Josep GarciaI am Josep Garcia, I live and work in Barcelona. After 8 years working as a digital marketer, whilst experimenting with several side gigs. I decided to launch my own website (in 2016) I took on the challenge of learning how to program, as I wanted my site coded from scratch. I have to say that using online educational platforms like Lynda (now known as LinkedIn Learning) was a complete blessing and I would have been lost without it.

What makes us different?

You have probably seen several websites that have reviews for the different educational platforms or even university degrees. The thing is that it’s difficult to know who you should trust. For sure, you can trust us, we have honest reviews and have used these tools ourselves to either improve our skills or completely change what we do.

You can also reach out to us, and we’ll try to guide you, just leave us a message using the commenting section of our guides and reviews.

Just so you know, we would not recommend something here that we’d not recommend to a good friend.

How we get funded?

Creating all the awesome content that you see at Upskillwise is our passion, but equally, it also takes a lot of time and resources. To fund the project, we use affiliate links, and we may receive a commission if you make a purchase through them, that does not mean you will be charged extra. In fact, quite the opposite you are likely to get a cheaper deal.

I hope you find all the information on Upskillwise useful, and thanks for stopping by.

Warm regards,

Catherine & Josep
