On the eve of the IAAF World Athletics Championships in Daegu, the head of the Kenyan delegation, Mr. Peter Pamba, was invited by President Synn to visit the Keimyung campus. The enjoyable task of showing Mr. Pamba around campus fell to me, and I doubt I'll ever meet a nicer man. I was also asked by the Keimyung Korean press to ask him a few questions which I've included below along with Mr. Pamba's answers.
My first task after agreeing to be the new International Affairs Coordinator here at Keimyung was right up my alley. Video editing has long been a hobby of mine, so I eagerly said yes when asked if I could edit this video recorded by three international students studying at Keimyung on the SAIPEKS program.

The opening of the Keimyung Arts Center was an event I had been looking forward to with much anticipation for almost a year. I just love the sound of an orchestra and I just had to bring along my camera to document the night for the history books.
In the summer of 2008, two of my former students - Suji and Doori - invited me to star in this animation movie for their senior year portfolio.
